Physicists have confirmed predictions of Stephen Hawking’s namesake theory of black holes using a black hole they constructed in their lab, according to a new paper.
When you see light, you’re looking at photons spat out by an excited atom. But what if instead of light, an excited atom released a wave of matter?
Some of the most exciting, mind-blowing physics happens when things get really, really cold – such as atoms clumping beneath the shell of a far-out electron. Imagine a bunch of people huddled under an awning, except the people are atoms, and the awning is… also an atom.
