"By studying the properties of anti-atoms we hope to learn more about the Universe in which we live."
Researchers have detailed evidence of the structure of antihydrogen using spectroscopy.
...a fundamental theory aiming to explain the Universe.
Physicists may finally be able to answer how it is that the early Universe didn't annihilate itself.
We may finally know the origin of our galaxy’s excessive amount of antimatter.
The second largest component of the universe is dark matter. The truth is, we understand little of what it is, and more of what it is not.
Though we're still in the dark about how there's so much more matter than antimatter.
This decades-old question explores the science behind building this massive weapon of mass destruction.
Space exploration has come a long way since the first primitive satellites—we’ve visited all the canonical planets, and laid the groundwork for the next stage of discovery and colonization. A new, more lasting space race is about to begin. Here’s the second part of our 100-year forecast of future space exploration.
Fusion rockets, Bussard ramjets, SK drives, world ships carrying thousands of colonists and entire ecosystems—these are just a few of the ideas to get us to the stars. In this handy guide, we’ve assembled some of the best proposals for interstellar travel, ranging in likelihood from the near-term achievable to the far-out implausible.
