Latest Experimental particle physics Stories
Researchers have uncovered chemical traces of a pigment, an important component of color, that once formed patterns in the feathers of fossilized birds.
ESAâ€™s Integral gamma-ray observatory has spotted extremely hot matter just a millisecond before it plunges into the oblivion of a black hole, but is it really doomed?
The Crab Nebula, one of our best-known and most stable neighbors in the winter sky, is shocking scientists with a propensity for fireworksâ€”gamma-ray flares set off by the most energetic particles ever traced to a specific astronomical object.
Jets of particles streaming from black holes in far-away galaxies operate differently than previously thought, according to a study published today in Nature.
The United States is losing its lead in high-energy physics, a field of science it's dominated since the 1930s. Scientists say Europe is now in the vanguard of a worldwide search to discover the deepest secrets that Mother Nature hides in bits and pieces of atoms.
