Future particle physics experiments are limited by the targets currently used in particle accelerators.
Less than two weeks after LIGO and Virgo turned back on, they’ve already seen evidence of two pairs of colliding black holes.
Researchers who worked on the Event Horizon Telescope have released the first image of a black hole’s shadow. Now what?
The image reveals the black hole at the center of Messier 87, a massive galaxy in the nearby Virgo galaxy cluster.
Scientists think that, under some circumstances, dark matter could generate powerful enough gravitational waves for equipment like LIGO to detect.
One of the latest discoveries from the LHC takes the properties of photons beyond what your electrodynamics teacher will tell you in class.
A re-examination of a particle discovered in 2015 has scientists debating its true identity.
Some theorists have taken to designing their own experiments to broaden the search for dark matter.
Meet three scientists connected by the Fisk-Vanderbilt Master’s-to-PhD Bridge Program.
Video games and physics have more in common than you might think.
Respondents to Symmetry’s survey about what it’s like to earn a PhD in particle physics or astrophysics offer their views of the experience.
A Swedish university tapped the founding director of CERN’s artist-in-residence program to curate a new art exhibit inspired by physics.
Scientists around the world are testing ways to further boost the power of particle accelerators while drastically shrinking their size.
