The question may seem simple, but physicists don’t yet know the answer. New measurements aim to change that.
Physicists and archaeologists are teaming up to provide research opportunities for Black and Hispanic undergraduates.
Theoretical physicist Clifford Johnson answers Symmetry writer Brianna Barbu’s questions about his work in science and outreach, including advising on movies like Avengers: Endgame.
A proposed dark-matter detection method would look for tracks of dark matter etched into billion-year-old mineral samples.
Sanford Underground Research Facility is making an effort to build bridges with Native American communities and operate with respect for the sacred land it is built on.
Read the travelogue of a xenon atom as it journeys from the air we breathe to a dark-matter detector a mile underground.
The new measurement from the Muon g-2 experiment at Fermilab strongly agrees with the value found at Brookhaven and diverges from theory with the most precise measurement to date.
What does it take to envision and build a seemingly impossible particle accelerator?
A super-precise experiment at Fermilab is carefully analyzing every detail of the muon’s magnetic moment.
A degree in particle physics or astrophysics can lead to a career in data science.
Researchers make progress on a vexing problem about how black holes evolve.
Learn about the Standard Model of particle physics and how physicists use it to predict the (subatomic) future.
Steve Tammes’ love of physics began with his grandfather’s tales about Fermilab.
Today, more than 90% of the indexed articles in the natural sciences are published in English. That wasn’t always the case.
Higgs-boson pairs could help scientists understand the stability of our universe. The trick is finding them.
