Researchers Discovered a New Kind of Higgs Relative in The Unlikeliest of Places

Sometimes the discovery of new physics demands insane levels of energy. Big machinery. fancy equipment. Countless hours of sifting through reams of data. And then sometimes the right combination of materials can open a doorway to invisible realms in a space little bigger than a tabletop. Take this new kind of relative to the Higgs … Read more

Astronomers Discover Brand-New Type of Star Explosion: The Micronova

A newly discovered type of stellar explosion could help us better understand thermonuclear outbursts on dead stars. The new phenomena are called micronovae, and they take place on the surface of white dwarf stars that are actively slurping down material from a close binary companion. The accumulation of material onto the white dwarf results in … Read more
