There have been many scientific highlights of physics and astronomy in recent years: the Higgs Boson, landing a probe on a comet, and an amazing fly-by of Pluto. But all this is dwarfed by what has been announced this week. A new era of science has begun.
Science is advancing rapidly. We are eradicating diseases, venturing further into space and discovering a growing zoo of
Yet for all its triumphs in terms of higher mathematics and quantum theory, eternal inflation feels like sleight of hand
In college, students who are not in the sciences or engineering must take some science classes as part of the general education
Science often makes strides by contradicting what we take for granted, and the biggest thing everyone takes for granted is
A new research observation by an international team of astrophysicists using the Hubble Space Telescope has led to the discovery of the largest sample of the faintest, smallest, and earliest known galaxies in the Universe.
