A team in Paris has made the most precise measurement yet of the fine-structure constant, killing hopes for a new force of nature.
Recent experiments show that particles should be able to go faster than light when they quantum mechanically “tunnel” through walls.
Having solved a central mystery about the “twirliness” of tornadoes and other types of vortices, William Irvine has set his sights on turbulence, the white whale of classical physics.
