So-called “information realism” has some surprising implications
There is no dark matter. Instead, information has mass, physicist says
Reversing history from Galileo's time, it is now the scientists who refuse to look through the telescope.
The “fittest” quantum properties make the most copies of themselves.
Scientists believe that mysterious dark matter is key to forming galaxies in the cosmos. Now, a recent series of bizarre findings threatens to undermine everything we think we know.
Discrepancies in measures of expansion may point to new physics
We've detected puny, stellar-mass black holes. And we've detected giant, supermassive black holes. But what about those in the middle?
Scientists have detected a mid-size black hole - considered the "missing link" in the understanding of these celestial brutes
In less than 30 years, humanity has discovered more than 4,000 exoplanets
Any theory of quantum gravity is going to have to grapple with some weird time stuff.
A new proof in computer science also has implications for researchers in quantum mechanics and pure mathematics
Physicists See Hints of X17, an Elusive Particle That Could Be a New Force of Nature
The idea that the universe splits into multiple realities with every measurement has become an increasingly popular proposed solution to the mysteries of quantum mechanics.
What is happening right now? Is your “now” the same as my “now”?
