Stephen Hawking wanted scientists to “create black holes” on Earth. Physics says it is possible.

‘I hope you’ll create black holes,’ Stephen said with a broad smile. We emerged from the dumbwaiter that had taken us underground to the five-story cavern that housed the ATLAS experiment at the CERN laboratory, the legendary European Organization for Nuclear Research near Geneva. CERN’s director general, Rolf Heuer, shuffled his feet uneasily. It was… Read More »

Scientists are exploring how deadly bursts of gamma rays could sterilize or vaporize the Earth

Since the signing of the Nuclear Test Ban Treaty in 1963, American scientists have launched satellites with the aim of monitoring the Earth for peaks of gamma rays, the emission of which is the telltale sign of a clandestine nuclear test. However, scientists were surprised when they found gamma-ray bursts not from Earth but from… Read More »

Scientists stunned by mysterious structures found in the Milky Way

ATLANTA — An international team of astrophysicists has discovered hundreds of mysterious structures at the center of the Milky Way galaxy. These one-dimensional cosmic threads are hundreds of horizontal or radial filaments, thin, elongated bodies of luminous gas that potentially originated a few million years ago when outflow from Sagittarius A*, the Milky Way’s central… Read More »

Israeli scientists suggest a solution to how the first galaxies formed

Recent observations made using the James Webb Space Telescope have surprisingly revealed an excess of massive galaxies in the universe, already appearing in the first half-billion years after the Big Bang. While these findings challenge existing knowledge about the formation of the first galaxies, Hebrew University researchers now propose a simple solution to this conundrum.… Read More »

A magical combination Scientists develop a new class of materials

A deformed material that is both rigid and capable of absorbing vibrations. Credit: D. Dykstra et al. Would you rather run into a brick wall or a mattress? Most people would find this decision easy. The hardness of a brick wall does not effectively dampen shocks or vibrations, while a mattress, with its softness, acts… Read More »
