Scientists discover hidden information in the 140-year-old concept of fundamental physics

Physicists have found a way to access physical information that, according to a recent publication, has been hidden from science for 140 years. As early as 1879, the physicist Edwin Hall discovered that electric currents bend when placed in a magnetic field, creating a voltage and a new electric field perpendicular to the current. Scientists have used this phenomenon, known …

NASA news: Scientist asks 'what Einstein wrong?' after object breaks laws of physics | Science | News

Einstein was the theoretical physicist behind the theory of relativity, one of the key pillars for the foundation of modern physics. Within his special relativity theory, the German-born genius set the speed of light at 186,000 miles per second, of which nothing can travel faster. However, NASA's Hubble telescope has spotted thousands of objects traveling over five times that speed …

The most massive neutron star ever discovered reaches the limits of physics

This is the artistic impression that the pulse of a massive neutron star is delayed by the transition of a white dwarf star between the neutron star and the earth. Because of this delay, astronomers have discovered the most massive neutron star yet. The European Southern Observatory's VISTA telescope captured a stunning image of the Magellanic Cloud, one of our …

Physics not "broken"? We are about to solve the proton-radius puzzle

Enlarge / Acquisition of the electron orbitals of a hydrogen atom with a quantum microscope in 2013. For nearly a decade, physicists have attempted to resolve conflicting experimental results with hydrogen atoms on the proton's radius. Physicist at York University in Toronto spent the past eight years meticulously conducting a sensitive experiment to measure the proton's charge radius, hoping to …

Even physics textbooks tend to rub slightly wrong

Sometimes you think you have a complete understanding of something and then BOOM – a simple problem throws everything out the window. Consider a very simple physical problem in which a block is pushed with a frictional force. Such issues are common in your introductory physics textbook, but they often lack some subtle details. I address two basic ideas in …
