The Missing Universe: CERN Has Started Searching for "Dark Photons"

Dark matter seems to outweigh visible matter roughly six to one, making up about 27% of the universe. Physicists from CERN now believe there's a fifth universal force that rules the behavior of dark matter, and is transmitted by a particle called the dark photon.

Boeing created world's Lightest Microlattice Metal

Boeing says it's created the lightest metal ever, a microlattice material which it describes as 99.99% air.
Weight savings are crucially important in aircraft manufacturing, since a lighter aircraft requires less fuel, which is airlines' largest operating expense.

Scientists detected a Particle made entirely of pure Nuclear Force

Scientists at the Vienna University of Technology (UT Wien) have come up with data that may prove that the meson f0(1710) particle could actually be the long sought-after "glueball" — a particle comprised entirely of pure force, which is integral to how we understand not only nuclear energy, but all energy.

'Excited atoms' live longer when placed in front of mirrors

Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology have succeeded in an experiment where they get an artificial atom to survive ten times longer than normal by positioning the atom in front of a mirror. The findings were recently published in the journal Nature Physics.

Research pair offer a way to put a living organism into superposition state

(—A pair of physicists, one with Tsinghua University in China, the other with Perdue University in the U.S. has come up with what they believe is a viable way to cause a living organism to be in two places at the same time. In the paper they have posted to the arXiv server, Zhang-Qi Yin and Tongcang Li suggest that an experiment conducted at the University of Colorado recently, could be modified by placing a living organism into a superposition state, rather than using just a piece of metal. The research pair liken their experimental idea to bringing to life to the famous...

Scientists create Material from 1 billion tiny Magnets that changes States like Water

Researchers at the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI) announced they have created a synthetic material with magnetic properties capable of changing states – just as water changes from solid ice to liquid or steam – with temperature change. Created from 1 billion tiny magnets, this new material may be the future for the world of electronics as it could facilitate information transfer.

Researchers use Japanese art to develop solar cells that can track the sun across the sky increasing efficiency by 40%

By borrowing from kirigami, the ancient Japanese art of paper cutting, researchers at the University of Michigan have developed solar cells that can track the sun. A flat plastic sheet backing the solar cells splits into wavy, connected ribbons when stretched. The tilt of the cells depends on the stretching, a simple mechanism for tracking the sun across the sky.

Scientists conduct most precise test to date of light speed finding Speed of Light is indeed Constant

Physicists have reported the most accurate test to date of Lorentz symmetry for photons by looking for variations in the speed of light, but found no violations. The study, by Moritz Nagel at the Humboldt-University of Berlin, Stephen Parker at The University of Western Australia, and their co-authors, is published in a recent issue of Nature Communications.
