New LHC data hint at deviations in the Standard Model of physics

Scientists at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) have just announced tantalising new data that hint at deviations or flaws in the Standard Model of physics.

The researchers have found evidence that subatomic particles called B mesons don't fall apart the way our current...

This new graphene-based electrode could boost solar storage by 3,000%

Drawing inspiration from the plant world, researchers have invented a new electrode that could boost our current solar energy storage by an astonishing 3,000 percent.

The technology is flexible and can be attached directly to solar cells - which means we could finally be one step closer to smartphones and laptops that draw their power from the Sun, and never run out. 

Calculations suggest we could one day Build a Rocket That travels 99.999% the Speed of Light

Theoretical physics often lifts the sanctions we set on our own imaginations.

Whether it's exploring the possibility of warp drives or understanding the rate of the Universe's expansion, we are quick to explore the unknown on our chalkboards until our tech is ready for our ideas.

Scientists are about to switch on a telescope that could photograph a black hole's event horizon

Black holes are among the most fascinating objects in the known Universe. But despite the fact that they're suspected to lurk at the centre of most galaxies, the reality is that no one has ever been able to actually photograph one.

That's because black holes, as their name implies, are very, very dark. They're so massive that they irreversibly consume everything that crosses their event horizon, including light, making them impossible to photograph....

Forget what you've learned - scientists just created a stable helium compound

While other noble gas elements have shown signs of forming compounds under extreme pressure, helium has remained firmly exclusive - until now. Scientists report creating what appears to be a stable helium-sodium compound, and it challenges some of the most basic assumptions of modern chemistry.

Physicists have found a metal that conducts electricity but not heat

Researchers have identified a metal that conducts electricity without conducting heat - an incredibly useful property that defies our current understanding of how conductors work.

Hydrogen turned into a metal for the first time. Technology and spaceflight might never be the same

By subjecting molecular hydrogen, a gas, to ungodly pressures higher than those found at the Earth’s core, Harvard researchers have accomplished the impossible: they’ve turned the lightest element into a metal. This is now the rarest and possibly the most expensive material on the planet. This may soon change as metal hydrogen moves from the stuff of alchemy to a critical resource in mankind’s quest of becoming an interstellar species.


Physicists created Black Hole in the lab that could finally prove Hawking Radiation

Stephen Hawking was the first to propose that not everything that comes in contact with a black hole succumbs to its immense gravity and inevitable nothingness. In fact, tiny particles of light, known as photons, are sometimes ejected back out of the black hole, robbing it of energy. This gradual loss of mass over time means that every black hole eventually evaporates out of existence.
