Observation of magnetic flipping in single proton heralds high-precision studies into matter and antimatter

One of the greatest mysteries of modern physics is the imbalance of matter and antimatter in the Universe. As every particle is produced and destroyed in tandem with its antiparticle, which has an identical mass but opposite charge, scientists are baffled as to why our Universe is matter dominated.

SLAC's X-ray laser explores big data frontier

(Phys.org) —It's no surprise that the data systems for SLAC's Linac Coherent Light Source X-ray laser have drawn heavily on the expertise of the particle physics community, where collecting and analyzing massive amounts of data are key to scientific success.

Spot-welding graphene nanoribbons atom by atom

Scientists have created single atom contacts between gold and graphene nanoribbons.

NASA's Hubble Uncovers Evidence of Farthest Planet Forming From Its Star

Astronomers using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope have found compelling evidence of a planet forming 7.5 billion miles away from its star, a finding that may challenge current theories about planet formation.

Warm Ocean, Not Icebergs, Causing Most of Antarctic Ice Shelves' Mass Loss

Ocean waters melting the undersides of Antarctic ice shelves are responsible for most of the continent's ice shelf mass loss, a new study by NASA and university researchers has found.

Discovery of new material state counterintuitive to laws of physics

When you squeeze something, it gets smaller -- unless you're among a group of scientists who have seemingly defied the laws of physics and found a way to apply pressure to make a material expand instead of compress/contract.
