The word uncertainty is used a lot in quantum mechanics. One school of thought is that this means there’s something out there in the world that we are uncertain about. But most physicists believe nature itself is uncertain.
A team of researchers brought us closer to finding out at what point gravity wins over matter and collapses neutron stars into black holes
A very interesting study on dangerous bacteria that can survive on our money won an Ig Nobel prize
Dark matter, by its very nature, is unseen. We cannot observe it with telescopes, and nor have particle physicists had any luck detecting it via experiments.
Astronomers discovered water vapor in the atmosphere of super-earth K2-18b, an exoplanet that is orbiting its host star in the habitable zone. According to scientists, k2-18b might potentially be the most habitable out of all exoplanets that have been discovered up until this day. The researchers published their findings in the science journal Nature Astronomy
Astrophysicists normally assume that huge systems like the universe, are indifferent to details of smaller systems contained within it. Scientists from the University of Hawaii at Manoa (Kevin Croker and Joel Weiner) have shown that this hypothesis can fail when it comes to compact objects that remain after the collapse and explosion of huge stars.
