A nerd fight has broken out over whether cosmic inflation—one of the most widely accepted theories in physics—breaks the rules of testability. The post Physicists Can't Agree on What Science Even Means Anymore appeared first on WIRED.
After a surprise discovery, astrophysicists are racing to understand superenergetic flashes of radio waves that sometimes beep out from distant galaxies. The post Inside the Hunt for the Source of a Mysterious Cosmic Burst appeared first on WIRED.
The Big Bang produced equal amounts of matter and antimatter. But our universe is mostly matter. What happened to the antimatter? The post The Search for the Universe's Missing Antimatter Remains Annoyingly Nebulous appeared first on WIRED.
