Recent experiments have put relatively large objects into quantum states, illuminating the processes by which the ordinary world emerges out of the quantum one.
Galaxies can move with each other across huge distances, and against the predictions of basic cosmological models.
Observers are powerful players in the quantum world.
The “fittest” quantum properties make the most copies of themselves.
Of the 2 trillion galaxies contained within our observable Universe, 94% are already forever beyond our reach
Scientists have detected a mid-size black hole - considered the "missing link" in the understanding of these celestial brutes
Discrepancies in measures of expansion may point to new physics
So-called “information realism” has some surprising implications
A new proof in computer science also has implications for researchers in quantum mechanics and pure mathematics
The laws of physics imply that the passage of time is an illusion. To avoid this conclusion, we might have to rethink the reality of infinitely precise numbers.
We've detected puny, stellar-mass black holes. And we've detected giant, supermassive black holes. But what about those in the middle?
If you were to go as far out into space as you can imagine, what would you encounter?
Any theory of quantum gravity is going to have to grapple with some weird time stuff.
New evidence shows that the key assumption made in the discovery of dark energy is in error
