'Star Trek' Science: How Antimatter Powers The Enterprise [Infographic]
Many of us enjoy the science involved in Star Trek and with the release of Star Trek: Beyond this week I thought it would be fun to talk about one of the things that the movies and shows get right.
Proton Spin Mystery Gains a New Clue | Amazing Science
Physicists long assumed a proton’s spin came from its three constituent quarks. New measurements suggest particles called gluons make a significant contribution. Protons have a constant spin that is an intrinsic particle property like mass or charge. Yet where this spin comes from is such a mystery it’s dubbed the “proton spin crisis.” Initially physicists thought a proton’s spin was the sum of the spins of its three constituent quarks. But a 1987 experiment showed that quarks can account…
Revolution in physics as gravitational waves seen for first time
Einstein’s last prediction and one of the most anticipated discoveries in physics has finally been confirmed. The LIGO experiment has seen ripples in space-time, caused by a black hole merger
Einstein's gravitational waves 'seen' from black holes
For the first time, scientists detect tiny, rhythmic distortions in space and time - gravitational waves - predicted by Einstein 100 years ago.

What It Looks Like When A Massive Black Hole Devours A Star
In the figure we see a cross section of what happens when the material from the disrupted star is devoured by the black hole. An accretion disk is formed (disk) by the material. There is too much material for it to pass into the black hole at once. It is heated up in the process and emits vast amounts of light and radiation, visible from Earth (Double arrow).
ETH Astronomers Identify Six 'Dark Galaxy' Candidates
One of the new dark-galaxy candidates, identified through a combination of spectral information (left) and images reflecting the emission of gas (middle) and stars (right). The position of the dark-galaxy candidate is marked by the red circle. R. A. Marino / MUSE
