The physicist who designed the LIGO experiment that detected gravitational waves still holes up in a small basement lab surrounded by electronics and optical instruments.

New math shows how, contrary to conventional scientific wisdom, conscious beings and other macroscopic entities might have greater influence over the future than do the sum of their microscopic components.

The Advanced Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory’s third detection further compounds the mystery of why black holes collide.

Join David Kaplan on a virtual-reality tour showing how the sun, the Earth and the other planets came to be.

As physicists extend the 19th-century laws of thermodynamics to the quantum realm, they’re rewriting the relationships among energy, entropy and information.

Angela Olinto’s new balloon experiment takes her one step closer to the unknown source of the most energetic particles in the universe.

Physicists are attempting to map the distribution of the prime numbers to the energy levels of a particular quantum system.

When a German retiree proved a famous long-standing mathematical conjecture, the response was underwhelming.

The French mathematician was cited “for his pivotal role in the development of the mathematical theory of wavelets.”
