Wild Theory Suggests Heavy Metals Came From Parasitic Black Holes

Wild Theory Suggests Heavy Metals Came From Parasitic Black Holes

If you were to rank the wildest things in the universe, there are a few obvious contenders: Gamma rays, fast radio bursts and quasars, for example. But no list would be complete without black holes and the black hole’s less-dense cousins, the neutron star. These hyper-compressed things can do some…

Groundbreaking Observation Confirms An Important Prediction Of Quantum Physics

Groundbreaking Observation Confirms An Important Prediction Of Quantum Physics

Particle accelerators have a lot of important jobs, such as looking for new stuff by slamming beams of old stuff together. But a new particle accelerator observation has managed to be important while doing almost precisely the opposite of what we’d expect. Physicists have found evidence for hard-to-detect stuff by,…
