What's up in
For the first time, physicists have calculated exactly what kind of singularity lies at the center of a realistic black hole.
Lurking behind Einstein’s theory of gravity and our modern understanding of particle physics is the deceptively simple idea of symmetry. But physicists are beginning to question whether focusing on symmetry is still as productive as it once was.
Opinions differ about what recent measurements of a sound-trapping fluid reveal about light-trapping black holes.
The same codes needed to thwart errors in quantum computers may also give the fabric of space-time its intrinsic robustness.
