4 cosmic phenomena that travel faster than light

Since Einstein, physicists have found that certain entities can reach superluminal (that means "faster-than-light") speeds and still follow the cosmic rules laid down by special relativity.

2 most dangerous numbers in universe threaten end of physics

A deeply disturbing and controversial line of thinking has emerged within the physics community. It's the idea that we are reaching the absolute limit of what we can understand about the world around us through science.

Black hole caught 'burping' gas

Astronomers have spotted two huge waves of gas being "burped" by the black hole at the heart of a nearby galaxy.

5 things Einstein got totally wrong

Relativity is now a centerpiece of modern physics, the reason GPS satellites and mobile internet exist, and why Einstein is easily the most famous scientist in history.But Einstein made plenty of errors and oversights, and sometimes, he was flat out wrong.

New test proves universe is "spooky"

The universe really is weird, which is bad news both for Albert Einstein and for would-be hackers hoping to break into quantum encryption systems. Eighty years after the physicist dismissed as "spooky" the idea that simply observing one particle could instantly change another far-away object, Dutch scientists said on Wednesday they had proved decisively that the effect was real.

After 100 years, Einstein's theory stands test of time

Albert Einstein's general theory of relativity is about to celebrate its 100th anniversary, and his revolutionary hypothesis has withstood the test of time, despite numerous expert attempts to find flaws.
