Computer scientists established a new boundary on computationally verifiable knowledge. In doing so, they solved major open problems in quantum mechanics and pure mathematics.
A proposal for building wormhole-connected black holes offers a way to probe the paradoxes of quantum information.
Faced with a decision, the brain weighs its options by bundling them into rapidly alternating cycles of brain waves.
A recent neutron star merger has defied astronomers’ expectations, leading them to question longstanding ideas about neutron stars and the supernovas that create them. “We have to go back to the drawing board.”
