The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences awarded the 2020 Nobel Prize in Physics to three astrophysicists based on their discoveries relating to black holes. Half the prize was awarded to Roger Penrose, with the other divided between Reinhard Genzel and Andrea Ghez.
Many people have misconceptions about what epilepsy actually is. Here are eight common myths and their corresponding truths.
On Oct. 1, 1990, scientists undertook one of the most significant explorations of the universe to this date. Instead of aiming upwards at the stars, researchers looked into our cells and began the arduous process of mapping the entire human genome.
Some individuals prefer to write with one hand over another while others throw with only one of their hands. This is usually because one of your brains is dominant over the other.

In 1950, during a lunch conversation with three other physicists, American physicist Enrico Fermi exclaimed, “Where is everybody?” Seventy years later, scientists are still trying to explain the lack of any evidence for extraterrestrial life despite all theories pointing towards the existence of aliens.
Dramatic increases in global temperatures have caused a New Arctic to form, an example of the dire importance of immediate change to reduce carbon emissions to prevent higher temperatures and ocean acidification.
Are you interested in particle physics? Do you want to uncover the underlying mysteries of matter and would you like to learn about a great discovery on quarks? Scientists have observed something unusual in the association of quarks to form matter, and here’s a chance to learn something fascinating!
Poor air quality due to fires has recently been common. What happens when wildfire smoke and COVID-19 clash?
In 2012, the Higgs boson was observed in a collision experiment in the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. How does the Higgs boson relate to our everyday experiences in life?
