Stanford and University of California researchers found evidence of particles that are their own antiparticles. These 'Majorana fermions’ could one day help make quantum computers more robust.
Hugh Lippincott, a Fermilab scientist, went on a Skype date while looking for dark matter. He writes that things turned out fine.
The LHCb experiment at CERN has reported the observation of a new particle containing two charm quarks and one up quark.
Particles with two heavy quarks are predicted by the Standard Model theory of particle physics, but this is the first time scientists have been able to confirm they exist.
High school students nationwide will study the effects of the solar eclipse on cosmic rays.
A NASA rocket experiment could use the Doppler effect to look for signs of dark matter in mysterious X-ray emissions from space.
