Dark times for dark matter?

Post Image

Dark matter, which can be detected only thanks to its gravitational influence, remains a mystery after decades of research. Because it helps explain most observations quite well, a majority of astronomers however supports the theory. Why then haven’t we been able to identify its nature, or just prove its existence? …

No faster-than-light neutrinos, in the end?

Post Image

A controversy appeared a few months ago: scientists claimed they observed neutrinos traveling at faster-than-light speeds. This result was then highly debated, as it apparently violates Einstein’s special relativity, which says that nothing can move faster than light.
Among the ones questioning these results (that is to say almost everybody…), a …

Weighing antimatter

Post Image

Does antimatter behave like matter in gravity? This is the question a team of researchers wants to answer in the near future. If their behaviors happen to be different, it would have extremely important implications, and could maybe solve several long-standing problems.
Scientists from the University of California are on their …
