After a space telescope disintegrated, astrophysicists had little hope of understanding how supermassive black holes agitate giant galaxies. Then they invented a hack.
For the first time, physicists have calculated exactly what kind of singularity lies at the center of a realistic black hole.
Physicists have long searched for hypothesized dark matter particles called WIMPs. Now, focus may be shifting to the axion — an ultra-lightweight particle whose existence would solve two mysteries at once.
A surprisingly youthful estimate of the age of the rings has stirred a backlash.
Calculations involving a higher dimension are guiding physicists toward a misstep in Stephen Hawking’s legendary black hole analysis.
Three physicists stumbled across an unexpected relationship between some of the most ubiquitous objects in math.
