Symmetry writer Mike Perricone’s favorite physics books of 2020 cover an impressive span of time: from the very beginning of our universe until the very end.
A recent observation of an extremely rare subatomic process allows scientists to test the Standard Model’s boundaries.
Not all scientific claims are equal. How can you tell if a discovery is real?
Nearly 75 years after the puzzling first detection of the kaon, scientists are still looking to the particle for hints of physics beyond their current understanding.
Sal Wanying Fu knows there’s more to science than numbers.
The newly operational KAGRA will bump the number of gravitational-wave observatories to four, which will allow scientists to better triangulate the source of ripples in space-time.
Taking place on Twitter and in webinars, #BlackInPhysics week features events geared toward Black physicists, the entire physics community and the general public.
Here’s how physicists calculate g-2, the value that will determine whether the muon is giving us a sign of new physics.
Rubin Observatory will bring new capabilities to the studies of dark matter and dark energy.
An art exhibit at the Science Gallery Dublin combines art and science to illuminate the invisible nature of dark matter.
The LUX-ZEPLIN collaboration has published results showing radioactive background levels for experiment’s components, creating a library for future rare event searches.
Extremely massive fundamental particles could exist, but they would seriously mess with our understanding of quantum mechanics.
Handedness—and the related concept of chirality—are double-sided ways of understanding how matter breaks symmetries.
Particle accelerators like the LHC require intricate beam dump systems to safely dispose of high-energy particles after each run.
In this stop-motion video, Symmetry writer Zack Savitsky imagines an artist whose supplies have taken on some of the properties of neutrinos.
Humans and robots work together in a carefully choreographed dance for the Mu2e experiment.
