Latest Lawrence Krauss Stories
Science fiction borrows from, and sometimes anticipates, the state of the art in scientific progress. This can be seen from warp drives to hyperspace, and has resulted in the perception that science and science fiction have a causal relationship.
A new theory suggests perhaps dark energy may be created by interactions of exotic particles like the Higgs Boson.
Before firing up the dilithium crystals in your warp drive, you should know what you are getting into, said Lawrence Krauss, ASU Foundation Professor at Arizona State University.
Advancing into the next frontier in astrophysics and cosmology depends on our ability to detect the presence of a particular type of wave in space, a primordial gravitational wave.
A panel of international scientists moved the minute hand of the "Doomsday Clock" back one minute on Thursday.
Lawrence Krauss, a theoretical physicist and cosmologist at Arizona State University, will co-chair the Board of Sponsors of the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists with Nobel Laureate Leon Lederman.
But gravitational waves may be more sensitive probe of early universe physics than previously thought
Scientists predict that trillions of years into the future, the information that currently allows us to understand our universe will have disappeared over the visible horizon.
Two physicists have shown that matter as we know it will remain as the universe expands at an ever-increasing clip. That is, the current status quo between matter and its alter ego, radiation, will continue as the newly discovered force of dark energy pushes the universe apart.
- A morbid dread of being buried alive. Also spelled 'taphiphobia'.
