Cosmic dust proves prevalent

Space dust accounts for at least some of the possible signal of cosmic inflation the BICEP2 experiment announced in March. How much remains to be seen.

Science gets social

If you like your science with a cup of coffee, a pint of beer or a raucous crowd, these events may be for you.

What Hawking really meant

Fermilab physicist Don Lincoln explains the idea of a metastable universe, what it has to do with the Higgs boson, and why we're still in good shape.

Pursuit of dark matter progresses at AMS

A possible sign of dark matter will eventually become clear, according to promising signs from the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer experiment.

Sci-fi writers, scientists imagine the future

A new project pairs science fiction authors with scientists to envision worlds that are both inspiring and achievable.

True tales of science

When two theoretical physicists crossed paths at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in New York, the Story Collider was born.

XKCD creator answers ‘What if?’

Randall Munroe, author of the webcomic xkcd, has found another outlet for his inquisitive nature.

Astrophysics at the edge of the Earth

Conducting research at the South Pole takes a unique level of commitment.
