To the best of our knowledge, we humans can only experience this world in three spatial dimensions (plus one time dimension): up and down, left and right, and forward and backward. But in two physics labs, scientists have found a way to represent a fourth spatial dimension.

If you're into physics making your brain leak out of your ears, you should familiarise yourself with Bose-Einstein condensates. These strange arrangements of atoms can be all the states of matter at once, can look like they have negative mass, and essentially bring the weirdness of quantum mechanics to larger scales.
How accurate a clock do you really need, honestly? You'll still probably show up late to parties and dial exactly three minutes late into every scheduled phone call. But scientists creating ultra-precise new atomic clocks don't really have you in mind. Instead, they're using wild physics to understand mysteries of the Universe that could alter time itself.
