Researchers wrote in the journal Physical Review Letters that they have found evidence of a strict limit on CPT violation from polarization of gamma-ray bursts.


Word of the Day
bretelles
  • In dressmaking, straps running from the belt in front over the shoulders to the belt in the back, with more or less elaboration of trimming and outline. They usually broaden at the shoulder and narrow toward the waist.
The word 'bretelles' comes from a French word meaning 'braces'.
