The new treatise on the existence of parallel universes was published on Friday.
The discovery may usher in a new era of astronomy and answer big questions about black holes.
But if that finding leaves you feeing flat, take heart. It's still not proof that we live in a hologram. “If quantum gravity

According to Einstein's general relativity, massive objects warp spacetime so that anything traveling through it, including
My goal was to help key players in science and education better understand the values and essential role that music and creativity have in fulfilling our collective vision of fostering the well-being of humanity and cultivating a more intelligent, creative and compassionate global citizenry.
Why does science work? Why is math so unreasonably effective at describing the physical world? For that matter, how can simple equations predict the behavior of really complicated things?
And why give Hawking's theories the cartoon treatment? Stephen Hawking has some big ideas that answer these big questions
"It will not be a minor paper," Ting said, hinting that the findings were important enough that the scientists rewrote the
CSM: Ah. So if we zoom down, as small as we can go, we can break down molecules into atoms, and atoms into subatomic particles
HuffPost Senior Science Correspondent Cara Santa Maria speaks with theoretical physicist Mark Jackson to get a primer on superstring theory.
2012-11-15-lottopullOptical illusions reflect limitations in our perception of physical reality. But what really is physical reality? While dozens of philosophers have struggled for millennia with attempts to directly answer this question, modern science settled on a more modest goal -- how can we explain reality's behavior?
