Superman's solar power actually contravenes the laws of physics, according to a team of students at the University of Leicester.
A CERN particle that was originally thought to have traveled faster than the speed of light was measured using faulty equipment.
This story initially had an incorrect reference in the caption of the main image. It is neutrinos, not neutrons.
Physics laws appear to be holding up fine with a second experiment showing CERN's neutrinos traveling more sedately than in last year's surprising finding.
A fiber-optic link malfunction might have caused neutrinos to appear to travel faster than the speed of light--but another effect could have made them seem even faster.
The prestigious award goes to Francois Englert and Peter Higgs, who a half-century ago independently proposed what became the Higgs boson, discovered in 2012.
A first round of error checking has shown subatomic particles still travel faster than the speed of light, but physicists want more confirmation before drawing any conclusions.
Tiny subatomic particles are challenging Einstein's decades-old conclusion that nothing can travel faster than light. Next up: intense scrutiny of the finding.
Quantum teleportation is reaching greater distances, and hopes are high that satellites will be able to use the technology.
Could the intrepid scientists at CERN have created a machine that could be used to travel into the future? In this video we find out.
