Crucial Superconducting Theory Confirmed

  Superconductivity promises to revolutionize our world with efficient transport, cheaper electricity, and even hoverboards. Although it’s still a long road to that technology, a crucial theory has just been confirmed that could help. The superconducting state happens suddenly when electrons in the material join in pairs. This formation is due to internal electrical currents…

New Experiment Confirms Fundamental Symmetry In Nature

With the help of the Large Hadron Collider’s (LHC) heavy-ion detector ALICE (A Large Ion Collider Experiment), physicists have confirmed there is a fundamental symmetry in nature. By making precise measurements of particle mass and electric charge, researchers from the University of São Paulo (USP) and the University of Campinas (UNICAMP) confirmed the symmetry between the nuclei…

Physicists Plan To Put A Microbe In Two Places At Once

We’ve all heard of Schrödinger’s cat, a famous thought experiment where a cat is simultaneously alive and dead. In a new study, physicists hope to take this one step further by putting a microbe in two places at once.  In 1935, Erwin Schrödinger – one of the founders of quantum theory – first proposed his now famous thought experiment in which…

There’s A Global Ocean Beneath The Surface Of Enceladus

Scientists have long suspected that Saturn’s tiny moon Enceladus harbored a subsurface ocean. A new study published in the journal Icarus and based on data collected by NASA’s Cassini spacecraft, indicates the ocean covers the entire globe. Over the past decade, the Cassini spacecraft has been busy studying the Saturnian system, providing unprecedented data and images of the gas…
