A soon-to-be-launched novel space telescope may reveal a new type of "featherweight" black hole that will challenge existing theories of black hole formation
Researchers examine the interface between these two theories, using ultra-high-energy neutrinos detected by a particle detector placed deep inside the Antarctic ice sheet at the South Pole
A research partnership between theoretical physicists and computational physicists at the University of Virginia that may offer new insight into the possibility of a theory of everything or, at the very least, a better understanding of gravity, one of the fundamental forces of
The facility, named JUNO, consists of a huge tank that surrounds an array of detectors. The container contains a substance that causes a scintillation which is recorded in the detectors and thus allows to identify a neutrino event, its type and mass, since the neutrino particles change
Researchers in Germany have developed an artificial intelligence capable of postulating physical theories by identifying patterns in complex data sets and after being fed all known physics
The non-Abelian anions are quasi-particles with fascinating statistical and topological properties. Until recently, these particles were only theoretical, but now a research group from Harvard University has created them for the first time in the laboratory. The discovery is made
A new theoretical analysis puts the probability that massive neutron stars harbor non-configurational quark nuclei between 80 and 90 percent. The result was achieved through massive computer runs using Bayesian statistical inference.
The cosmic ray detector that includes 507 ground scintillator stations, covering an extensive detection area of ​​700 square kilometers in Utah, USA. On May 27, 2023, scientists discovered a particle with an enormous energy level of 244 EeV.
"This is the first measurement ever made of the free fall of antimatter (antihydrogen) atoms that directly shows that they really fall down," explained Prof. Eli Sherid from the Physics Department at Ben-Gurion University
The brown dwarf is part of a new pair system that may advance our understanding of the evolution of stars and planets under extreme radiation conditions
Prof. Yael Shadami from the Faculty of Physics at the Technion focuses on the study of elementary particles including electrons, quarks, photons and gluons, and the interactions, or forces, that act between them. It tries to discover more elementary particles and interactions, beyond those described
Researchers from Tel Aviv University were able to describe for the first time a rare physical process that begins with the Higgs boson - the "divine particle" that was first observed about a decade ago - and eventually decays into a pair of rare elementary particles * Observations
