Physicists have built a tractor beam out of lasers that can both repel and attract objects across distances 100 times farther than previously possible.
A water-based tractor beam that could contain oil spills and manipulate floating objects cannot yet be explained by mathematical theory.
A physics professor and climate change expert is offering $30,000 of his own money to anyone who can provide irrefutable proof that man-made climate change doesn't exist.
Scientists achieve reliable quantum teleportation for the first time with tiny bits of data. Will you be sent next?
Stephen Hawking gets together with betting chain Paddy Power to offer his brain power in predicting likely winners.
Stanford Professor Andrei Linde gets a little choked up when a colleague delivers the news that his theory of cosmic inflation has been verified by the observation of primordial gravitational waves.
Two physicists have been together for seven years. It's like the start of a joke. Instead, it's the start of something beautiful -- and, well, physic(s)al.
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.
Researchers are improving the first nanoscale MRI technique developed at MIT in 2009 in the hopes of imaging such biological samples as viruses at extremely high resolution.
Famed for his theoretical experiment in which a cooped-up cat neither lives nor dies, the physicist would have been 126 years old today.
