At 21, Ashwin Sah has produced a body of work that senior mathematicians say is nearly unprecedented for a college student.
Physicists plan to leave no stone unturned, checking whether dark matter tickles different types of detectors, nudges starlight, warms planetary cores or even lodges in rocks.
Even genes essential for life can be caught in an evolutionary arms race that forces them to change or be replaced.
The newly-measured rate of a key nuclear fusion process from the Big Bang matches the picture of the universe 380,000 years later.
For almost a century, the anonymous members of Nicolas Bourbaki have written books intended as pure expressions of mathematical thought.
Once missing in action, middleweight black holes have finally been detected. Now researchers are trying to figure out how they grow from small ones.
Researchers see structural changes in genetic material that allow memories to strengthen when remembered.
Physicists have reached a long-sought goal. The catch is that their room-temperature superconductor requires crushing pressures to keep from falling apart.
