Multiple research teams claim to have conclusively demonstrated quantum entanglement, which had been disdainfully dubbed "spooky action at a distance" by Albert Einstein.
For decades, physicists thought the hard-to-detect fundamental particles were massless. Not so, Takaaki Kajita and Arthur McDonald discovered, opening new research into the universe's past and present.
In a speech in Stockholm, renowned scientist Stephen Hawking says black holes "are not the eternal prisons they were once thought." That's the easy version of his musings on the topic.
Technically Incorrect: Cox, a professor and TV star in the UK, gets tired of those who think the moon landings were filmed in a studio. Buzz Aldrin backs him up.
Technically Incorrect: It seems one can never know enough about how temperature affects the air pressure in a football. As part of its investigation, the NFL team reportedly is researching gas physics. Really.
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.
