Exotic matter
In physics, exotic matter is matter that somehow deviates from normal matter and has "exotic" properties. Exotic mass has been considered a colloquial term for matters such as Dark matter, negative ma...
Gamma-Ray Blazars Powered By Billion-Solar-Mass Black Holes Found
Using the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescopes, astronomers found 5 early universe gamma-ray blazars. Two of them were powered by “billion-solar-mass” black hole...
Making metallic hydrogen at Harvard
Nearly a century after it was theorized, Harvard scientists have succeeded in creating metallic hydrogen. In addition to helping scientists answer fundamenta...
Vera Rubin, Astrophysicist Who Confirmed Existence Of Dark Matter, Dies At 88
The astrophysicist's groundbreaking research on spiral galaxies provided evidence of invisible dark matter. She was a pioneer in an era when women were excluded from many astronomy programs.
Quantum Levitation
Suspending a superconducting disc above or below a set of permanent magnets. The magnetic field is locked inside the superconductor ; a phenomenon called 'Qu...
Astronomers find a ‘nearly-naked’ supermassive black hole
A close galactic encounter gave these astronomers an interesting discovery
The case for black holes being nothing but holograms just got even stronger
If anything can sum up just how little we truly know about the Universe, it’s black holes. We can’t see them because not even light can escape their gravitational pull, we have no idea what they’re ma...
2016 Nobel Prize In Physics Awarded To David Thouless, Duncan Haldane And Michael Kosterlitz
They were honored for their work in revealing the secrets of exotic matter. Their discoveries, using advanced mathematics, had boosted research in condensed matter physics and raised hopes for uses in...
X-ray Echoes Map a Black Hole’s Disk
Some 3.9 billion years ago in the heart of a distant galaxy, the tidal pull of a monster black hole shredded a star that wandered too close. X-rays produced ...
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.
Hubble Captures The Beating Heart Of The Crab Nebula
Peering deep into the core of the Crab Nebula, this close-up image reveals the beating heart of one of the most historic and intensively studied remnants of a supernova — an exploding star.
Soft hairs help resolve the black-hole information paradox
Stephen Hawking and colleagues claim partial solution to 40-year-old puzzle
EARTH's First 'Wormhole' is Created, Far-Future of Space Travel

Could black holes be the dark matter everyone has been looking for?
As we wait for more LIGO results, a maverick theory pops up
Elusive Dark Matter Galaxy Revealed By Cosmic Lens
An invisible dark-matter galaxy hides in the edges of another larger galaxy serving as a natural magnifying glass. Astronomers probing the sky used the gravity of a massive galaxy as a natural magnif...

After Black Holes Collide, a Puzzling Flash
A surprising flash that accompanied a black hole collision is leading physicists to rethink what black holes can do.
Bose-Einstein condensate
Schematic Bose-Einstein Condensation versus temperature and the energy diagramA Bose–Einstein condensate (BEC) is a state of matter of a dilute gas of bosons cooled to temperatures very close to abs...

Dark matter
Dark matter is a hypothetical kind of matter that cannot be seen with telescopes but accounts for most of the matter in the Universe. The existence and properties of dark matter are inferred from its ...

Degenerate matter
Degenerate matter in physics is a collection of free, non-interacting particles with a pressure and other physical characteristics determined by quantum mechanical effects. It is the analogue of an id...
Negative mass
In theoretical physics, negative mass is a hypothetical concept of matter whose mass is of opposite sign to the mass of normal matter, e.g. −2 kg. Such matter would violate one or more energy con...
A neutrino (/nuːˈtriːnoʊ/ or /njuːˈtriːnoʊ/, originally [nɛuˈtrino]) is an electrically neutral, weakly interacting elementary subatomic particle with half-integer spin. The neutrino (meaning ...

Strange matter
Strange matter is a particular form of quark matter, usually thought of as a "liquid" of up, down, and strange quarks. It is to be contrasted with nuclear matter, which is a liquid of neutrons and pro...
A tachyon /ˈtæki.ɒn/ or tachyonic particle is a hypothetical particle that always moves faster than light. The word comes from the Greek: ταχύ or tachy /ˈtɑːxi/, meaning "swift, quick, fast, rapi...

Soft gamma repeater
A soft gamma repeater (SGR) is an astronomical object which emits large bursts of gamma-rays and X-rays at irregular intervals. It is conjectured that they are a type of magnetar or, alternatively, ne...
The ergosphere is a region located outside a rotating black hole. Its name is derived from the Greek word ergon, which means “work”. It received this name because it is theoretically possible to extra...
