Scientists capture pitch drop on camera for first time (w/ Video)

The Pitch Drop experiment set up in 1944 at Trinity College Dublin's School of Physics is one of the world's oldest continuously running experiments.

Elucidation of spin state of conduction electrons in graphene

Using a spin-polarized metastable helium beam, a group headed by Dr. Shiro Entani, who is a limited-term researcher at the Advanced Science Research Center, Japan Atomic Energy Agency (President: Shojiro Matsuura) and Dr. Yasushi Yamauchi, a Group Leader in the Nano Characterization Unit, National Institute for Materials Science (President: Sukekatsu Ushioda) succeeded in detecting the electronic spin state of only the graphene contacted to a magnetic metal in devices.

NASA Releases Images of Earth Taken By Distant Spacecraft

Color and black-and-white images of Earth taken by two NASA interplanetary spacecraft July 19 show our planet and its moon as bright beacons from millions of miles away in space.

Space Station Cargo Ship Activities to Air on NASA TV

NASA Television will provide live coverage of the departure of one Russian cargo spacecraft from the International Space Station (ISS) on Thursday, July 25 and the launch and docking of another to the station Saturday, July 27.

Making big 'Schroedinger cats': Quantum research pushes boundary by testing micro theory for macro objects

Since Erwin Schroedinger's famous 1935 cat thought experiment, physicists around the globe have tried to create large scale systems to test how the rules of quantum mechanics apply to everyday objects. Researchers recently made a significant step forward in this direction by creating a large system that is in two substantially different states at the same time.

Mirror, mirror on the wall, who has the lowest noise of them all

Scientists have demonstrated a novel "crystalline coating" technique for producing low-loss mirrors. This technology will further accelerate progress in the development of narrow-line width lasers.

20 Things You Didn't Know About... Gravity

The apple of Newton's eye and the focus of Einstein's work, gravity is weaker than you probably think and weirder than you probably imagined.

Researchers make new discovery about neutrinos, bringing us one step closer to perhaps solving one of the biggest myster

International research including the UK and Japan has confirmed that subatomic particles called neutrinos have a new form of identity-shifting property. Announced today (19 July 2013) these results could one day help scientists explain why the universe contains matter but very little antimatter.

Discovery of rare decay narrows space for new physics

After a quarter of a century of searching, physicists have discovered a rare particle decay that gives them an indirect way to test models of new physics.

New Large Hadron Collider discovery: Measurement of predicted particle decay with implications for dark matter search

Scientists have now observed B-sub-s meson decay as predicted by the Standard Model of Particle Physics. The discovery at the Large Hadron Collider will impact scientists' search for dark matter in the universe.
