Bubbles are a serious business. While they're beloved as a childhood pastime and a bathtub luxury, the physics behind the delicate, iridescent clusters remains remarkably complex. Now mathematicians have pinned down the ephemeral physical processes that...
Want to discover the next big breakthrough in cosmology? Turn to the dark side, says renowned theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking. “The missing link in cosmology is the nature of dark matter and dark energy,” Hawking said Tuesday night...
The fanfare that accompanied Stephen Hawking’s entrance into Caltech’s Beckman Auditorium on Tuesday evening was at once cosmologically grand and a bit tongue-in-cheek. It was Richard Strauss’ 1896 “Thus Spake Zarathustra,’&...
This post has been corrected. See the note below for details.Humans are on the cusp of discovering how the universe works on its biggest and smallest scales, Stephen Hawking said during a lecture Tuesday in Los Angeles. The renowned theoretical physicist made his name studying black holes, massive structures that...
LEAD, S.D. — The scientists don hard hats, jumpsuits and steel-toed boots to pile into a metal cage for a rumbling 11-minute descent into an abandoned South Dakota gold mine. They step over old mine-cart rails, through rough-walled tunnels and...
Edward A. Frieman, a leading figure in American science for decades as a researcher with wide-ranging interests, a top-level governmental advisor on defense and energy issues, and director of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego, has...

Donald A. Glaser Nobel Prize-winning physicist Donald A. Glaser, 86, a Nobel Prize-winning UC Berkeley physicist who invented a device called the bubble chamber, which allowed researchers to track the paths of high-energy atomic particles after...
Evidence indicates that the new particle discovered at the Large Hadron Collider is a Higgs boson, officials at the European Organization for Nuclear Research, also known as CERN, said Thursday. But whether it is the version of the Higgs boson...
It seems increasingly likely that the subatomic particle ferreted out by physicists at the Large Hadron Collider near Geneva last year is indeed a Higgs boson, scientists said Wednesday after a day of talks at a physics conference in Italy. First...
Robert C. Richardson Won Nobel Prize for physics in 1996 Robert C. Richardson, 75, a Cornell University professor who shared a Nobel Prize for a key discovery in experimental physics, died Tuesday in Ithaca, N.Y., from complications of a heart attack,...
Before Carl R. Woese, science divided the living world into two types of organisms: bacteria and everything else. But the University of Illinois professor and colleagues in the 1970s discovered that microbes now called archaea look like bacteria but...
Astronomers may have to brace for a much humbler astrophysics mission following the planned launch of the James Webb Space Telescope in 2018, a NASA official told a ballroom full of astronomers Tuesday. Under current budget constraints and with future...
