A bold new idea aims to link two famously discordant descriptions of nature. In doing so, it may also reveal how space-time owes its existence to the spooky connections of quantum information.
If string theorists can show that their framework is the only consistent theory of quantum gravity, does that make it true even without tangible evidence?
Scientists report the possible discovery of primordial gravitational waves, ripples in space-time that carry a record of how the universe began.
New calculations suggest physicists may someday discover a fundamental theory of gravity, but it could require a radical new perspective on the universe.
Physicists have devised experiments that can probe the interface between quantum mechanics and general relativity.
Physicists have discovered a jewel-shaped geometric object that challenges the notion that space and time are fundamental constituents of nature.
New findings suggest that beneath the surface of quantum theory lies a vibrant string theory world where some matter corresponds to black holes in higher dimensions.
If a new hypothesis about black hole firewalls proves correct, at least one of three cherished notions in theoretical physics must be wrong.
