Mundane dark matter may lurk in starry clusters - space - 08 January 2012 - New Scientist | Theoretical Physics | Scoop.it

DARK matter - the mysterious substance thought to make up about 80 per cent of the universe's matter - could be more mundane than thought. Inside balls of stars known as globular clusters, at least.

Nanoscale wires defy quantum predictions

Nanoscale wires defy quantum predictions | Theoretical Physics | Scoop.it

Microchips could keep on getting smaller and more powerful for years to come. Research shows that wires just a few nanometres wide conduct electricity in the same way as the much larger components of existing devices, rather than being adversely affected by quantum mechanics.

Photonics Trick Finesses Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle | Theoretical Physics | Scoop.it

An unconventional alternative to quantum mechanics gets a boost this week with a new experiment that tracks the path of individual photons. And the alternative theory, Bohmian mechanics, and the novel photonics technology behind the experiment find possible applications in everything from simulating complex molecules to quantum tunneling.

Magnetic Monopoles in Field Theory and Cosmology

The existence of magnetic monopoles is predicted by many theories of particle physics beyond the Standard Model. However, in spite of extensive searches, there is no experimental or observational sign of them.

Tech Art: CERN Artist in Residence

Julius von Bismarck is only 28 years old, but his artistic resume is already several pages long. He’s currently taking time off from school to be the new artist in residence at CERN — the world’s biggest particle physics research facility, home of the Large Hadron Collider. On Wednesday, von Bismarck will deliver a major public address at CERN’s Globe for Science and Innovation.

Left to its own devices it seems the "dark universe" would never be able to make something as remarkable as life. Now that is something to ponder. Perhaps the dark universe makes us matter more than we ever realized.

Scrunch time: The peculiar physics of crumpled paper

Scrunch time: The peculiar physics of crumpled paper | Theoretical Physics | Scoop.it

When you crumple up your gift-wrapping paper this year, you'll create a shape so complex that it has defeated the most sophisticated computers.


And when you throw out your Christmas wrapping paper this year, don't tell Narayanan Menon and Anne Dominique Cambou. You'll be throwing away examples of their painstaking research.


That's because they study the physics of crumpled balls of paper, which contain deeper mysteries than you might expect. Take a sheet of A4, scrunch it up and throw it at a colleague. You'll notice that even though paper is flimsy, it becomes sturdier in the form of a ball.

In this engaging lecture (click image above to watch), theoretical physicist Lawrence Krauss explains the growing respectability of extra-dimensional theories in physics, tracing the evolution of the idea from Plato’s cave through Edwin A. Abbott’s Flatland, and from Einstein-Minkowski spacetime through Kaluza-Klein theory, on into modern-day string theory.
