Physicists describe a way to merge quantum theory with Einstein’s special theory of relativity — and even a method to test it experimentally
For decades it seemed that room-temperature superconductivity might be forever out of reach, but in the last five years a few research groups around the world have been engaged in a race to attain it in the lab.
The 2020 Nobel Prize in Chemistry has been awarded to Emmanuelle Charpentier and Jennifer Doudna, who transformed an obscure bacterial immune mechanism, commonly called CRISPR, into a tool that can simply and cheaply edit the genomes of everything from wheat to mosquitoes to humans.
David Spergel, director of the Flatiron Institute's Center for Computational Astrophysics, weighs in on the 2020 Nobel Prize in Physics, which went to three scientists' work revealing that stars at the center of our galaxy are hurtling through space around a supermassive black hole.
A suite of new servers and systems management software from Dell EMC is aimed at retaining long-term and complex data for researchers, says Ian Fisk, co-director of the Flatiron Institute's Scientific Computing Core.
It isn’t quite “Star Trek,” but his optical tweezers use the pressure of light in a laser beam to seize and manipulate microscopic objects, from atoms to living cells.
A new study proves that far from being mere mathematical artifacts, particles that are indistinguishable from one another can be a potent resource in real-world experiments
New research from scientists at Harvard University, MIT and the Flatiron Institute seeks to understand and classify electron hydrodynamics.
Pictures created from old observations show the void’s stormy evolution over the past decade.
