Quantum Physicists Probe Fabric of Spacetime to Solve Mystery of Dark Energy
One of the great mysteries of the cosmos is why it is expanding at an apparently accelerating rate. Physicists have suggested an outward force, dubbed "dark energy," causes this expansion, but they ha...
A New ‘Einstein’ Equation Suggests Wormholes Hold Key To Quantum Gravity
A new Einsteinian equation, ER=EPR, may be the clue physicists need to merge quantum mechanics with general relativity.
Prof. Stephen Hawking Says Alien Life is Real, Warns Humans Not to Make Contact
Extraterrestrial life, commonly referred to as alien life, is the life that does not originate from the Earth. Some cosmologists believe alien life ranges from simple bacteria-like organisms to civili...
Dark matter may just be a bunch of ancient black holes
An invisible "dark matter" outweighs all the stars in space by 4:1. But gravitational waves may soon unmask the shadowy culprit.
People, Ever More Greedy And Stupid, Destroy The World - Stephen Hawking to Larry King
Global warming, mass shootings, global instability and overpopulation are all concerns humanity faces, but what is the greatest risk to all of us? Larry King asked scientific genius Stephen Hawking, w...
