Teams of physicists at CERN and the University of Tokyo have both taken a major step forward towards understanding a flighty, short-lived particle. Using a laser designed to meet the experiment’s specifications, the AEgIS collaboration succeeded in reducing the temperature of a cloud of positronium by more than half. This collection of exotic particles consists

Jupiter and Saturn need to step aside with their moon-hogging ways. The outer planets of the Solar System have also been harboring secret satellites. Using ground-based telescopes, astronomers have discovered three previously unknown moons in the space around Uranus and Neptune; one orbiting Uranus, and two around Neptune. That brings Uranus’ official moon count to

The green anaconda has long been considered one of the Amazon’s most formidable and mysterious animals. Our new research upends scientific understanding of this magnificent creature, revealing it is actually two genetically different species. The surprising finding opens a new chapter in conservation of this top jungle predator. Green anacondas are the world’s heaviest snakes,

Hopes of discovering some kind of extraterrestrial life within our own Solar System have suffered a blow with a new paper suggesting Saturn‘s largest moon is likely barren. “Unfortunately, we will now need to be a little less optimistic when searching for extraterrestrial lifeforms within our own Solar System,” says University of Western Ontario astrobiologist

Interstellar travel is only something humanity has achieved in science fiction — like Star Trek’s USS Enterprise, which used antimatter engines to travel across star systems. But antimatter isn’t just a sci-fi trope. Antimatter really exists. Elon Musk has called antimatter power “the ticket for interstellar journeys,” and physicists like Ryan Weed are exploring how

People with ADHD-like traits may have an evolutionary advantage when it comes to finding food in the wild. In a new experiment, researchers found that individuals with distinguishing qualities of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, like difficulty regulating where they focus their attention, and restlessness, have better foraging strategies than those with more neurotypical traits. The
