There's 400 percent more light in intergalactic space than sources could produce, say researchers. Could dark matter be the cause?
Using Intel's silicon photonics chips, Fujitsu demonstrates how fiber-optic links can replace copper wires to handle PCI Express data transfer. The result: a machine that's easier to keep cool.
Timey-wimey, wibbly-wobbly: scientists reckon satellites and dead stars could hold the key to the mystery of dark matter.
LED lights are the latest thing in home lighting, using less energy and lasting longer than their incandescent cousins. How do they work? Find out in the latest installment of Appliance Science.
Physicists have built a tractor beam out of lasers that can both repel and attract objects across distances 100 times farther than previously possible.
In another breakthrough in the weird, wonky world of quantum physics, researchers teleport data an unprecedented distance with a novel technique -- inching us closer to the rise of a 'quantum Internet.'
A mission to learn about the sex life of geckos in orbit took a bad turn when what should have been heaven in space turned into a reptilian tragedy.
Ever wanted to hold a nebula in your hands? Well now you can thanks to plans from NASA. Warning: It kind of looks like two molars stuck together.
We could see physical matter created out of nothing but light within 12 months if a new particle collider works as posited.
NASA confirms the discovery of an Earth-sized planet that may have potential for life, but its sun is dimmer than ours. Here's what an evening stroll on a beach on Kepler-186f might be like.
