The Kavli Institute at Cornell for Nanoscale Science has announced the appointment of a new director and co-director -- appointments that will also bring a change in focus for the institute.
A new study of gamma rays shows that less than a third of the emissions arise from black-hole-powered jets from active galaxies.
Researchers have a newly precise way to measure the size and age of the universe and how rapidly it is expanding, on a par with other techniques.
A massive planet outside our Solar System is being distorted and destroyed by its host star, a finding that helps explain the unexpectedly large size of the planet, WASP-12b.
From how massive humpbacks glide through the sea with ease to the efficient way fungal spores fly,
applied mathematicians have excavated the equations behind a variety of complex phenomena.
New images from NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope show where supernova remnants emit radiation a billion times more energetic than visible light.
Scientists created a new type of flexible solar cell, enhancing the absorption and efficiency, while bringing costs down.
Little is know about one of a black hole's fundamental properties, spin. But spin may be crucial to understanding the dynamics of a black hole's host galaxy.
