  • Scientists think we could be on the verge of new physics

    Science is always pushing the limit of accepted theories until we find that they don’t work anymore. And the latest results from CERN indicate that we might be on the verge of new physics.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Neutrino 'flavours' win physics Nobel Prize

    The 2015 Nobel Prize in Physics has been won by Takaaki Kajita and Arthur McDonald, for discovering how neutrinos switch between different "flavours".

  • Large Hadron Collider turns on 'data tap'

    The Large Hadron Collider has re-started scientific investigations after a two-year pause.

  • Advanced gravity hunt is green lit

    One of the great physics experiments of our age looks ready to begin its quest.

  • LHC restart sees first collisions

    The Large Hadron Collider smashes protons together for the first time since early 2013.
