The pieces are finally coming together on the long-delayed ITER experiment to create nuclear fusion.
Researchers at Princeton University, the Simons Foundation and the University of California-San Francisco developed a way to target tumors with the same kind of logic that drives computers, promising cancer treatments that are both safer and more broadly effective.
Researchers built super-sensitive chambers inside of mountains to study our host star.
Classical computers can efficiently simulate the behavior of quantum computers if the quantum computer is imperfect enough.
It might be possible, physicists say, but not anytime soon. And there’s no guarantee that we humans will understand the result.
Thawing permafrost is releasing microorganisms, with consequences that are still largely unknown.
A new analysis by Kris Pardo, a cosmologist at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and David Spergel, a cosmologist at Princeton University and director of the Flatiron Institute's Center for Computational Astrophysics underscores how hard it is to explain away dark matter.
