Fifth state of matter created onboard the ISS

Scientists working on-board the International Space Station have created what they describe as the fifth state of matter, a state referred to as the 'Bose-Einstein condensate', initially theorized by Albert Einstein and Satyendra Nath Bose in the 1920s.

Essential Science: Physicists detect a 'time' crystal

Scientists have uncovered hints of a time crystal. This is a a crystalline form of matter that 'ticks' when exposed to an electromagnetic pulse. The location of the discovery is almost as unusual as the discovery itself.

New form of electronic matter discovered

Chicago - The existence of new form of electronic matter has been reported by scientists. This new phase is called called quadrupole topological insulators, previously predicted as part of theoretical physics.

Physicists discover new form of matter

Physicists have demonstrated, for the first time, the existence of a new form of matter called excitonium. This material has perplexed scientists since it was first theorized, some 50 years ago.

Has a new phase of matter been discovered?

Particle physicists have put forward the notion that possibility that some types of glass may exist in a new state of matter at low temperatures.

New form of matter may advance quantum computing

In what could overturn our understanding of physics, a new phase of matter has been created. This is called, colloquially at least, “a time crystal.” Here atoms appear to move in a pattern that repeats in time rather than in space.

Dark matter 'smoother' than we thought: study

Paris - Dark matter, the mysterious substance believed to comprise a quarter of our Universe, is spread out more smoothly than previously thought, said a study Wednesday that may challenge some tenets of physics.

Large Hadron Collider begins restart process

The restart of the Large Hadron Collider has begun as particles begin to travel around the 27km tunnel again for the first time since 2013. The LHC has been shut down so that substantial upgrade and maintenance work can be completed.

Review: BBC's Human Universe asks the question: Why are we here? Special

Each one of us is made from matter, so what unites every person living on our planet and how did we get to be here and exist. Professor Brian Cox attempts to explain in his BBC documentary, the Human Planet.

Scientists discover how to turn light into matter

London - Scientists have found out how to turn pure light into matter for the very first time after 80 years of experimentation. The idea was first theorized 1934 by two physicists, but they never predicted that it would be possible.

It may just be a TV commercial for a mobile phone, but surely such accuracy and visual technique has rarely been done before

Does Photo-Realism Really Matter?

Sure, graphics matter to an extent, but at what cost?

Oklahoma Mom Gets 15 Years for Injecting Fecal Matter Into Infant Daughter

Sarena Sherrard suffers from a mental disorder known as Munchausen syndrome by proxy. A form of child abuse, it involves a parent--almost invariably the mother--inducing real or apparent symptoms of disease in a child.

Hubble makes 3D dark matter map

Astronomers have mapped the cosmic "scaffold" of dark matter upon which stars and galaxies are assembled.

More Evidence for Dark Matter

X-Ray pictures of colliding galaxy clusters may shine light on "Dark Matter" theory.
