Experiment Confirms Quantum Weirdness

  Science does not get much stranger than the whacky world of quantum mechanics – our theory of very small sub-atomic particles which seems to defy common sense in so many ways. Physicists have long known that quantum mechanics is at odds with our everyday view of the world but they have never been able … Continue reading

Antarctic Sea Ice Chalks Another Record Despite Record Temperatures

Antarctic sea ice extent has set a new record as computer forecasts predict that Arctic sea ice extent will be above average this Summer even though global surface temperatures are at record levels. Sea ice extent in the Antarctic reached a record level for June with an anomaly – the variation from the long term … Continue reading

Meet The Tetraquarks – A Whole New Family Of Sub Atomic Particles

A whole new family of sub-atomic particles is being uncovered by an international team of high-energy physicists working together in China in a collaborative experiment known as BESIII. They say the discovery of a strange new  electrically charged subatomic particle called Zc(4020) is a sign that they have begun to unveil an entirely new and … Continue reading
