What's up in

An experiment caught a quantum system in the middle of a jump — something the originators of quantum mechanics assumed was impossible.

In the late 1940s, Richard Feynman invented a visual tool for simplifying particle calculations that forever changed theoretical physics.

The stunning emergence of a new type of superconductivity with the mere twist of a carbon sheet has left physicists giddy, and its discoverer nearly overwhelmed.

These games combine quantum entanglement, infinity and impossible-to-calculate winning probabilities. But if researchers can crack them, they’ll reveal deep mathematical secrets.

One of the first quantum simulators has produced a puzzling phenomenon: a row of atoms that repeatedly pops back into place.

A two-player game can reveal whether the universe has an infinite amount of complexity.

The new work promises to give researchers a better grip on the core mystery of quantum mechanics.

The Frauchiger-Renner thought experiment has shaken up the world of quantum foundations.

On November 16, 2018, more than 200 readers joined writers and editors from *Quanta Magazine* for a wide-ranging panel discussion that examined the newest ideas in fundamental physics, biology and mathematics research.
