    1. What's the point of theoretical physics?

      International Business Times via Yahoo UK & Ireland NewsFeb 12 08:07 AM

      You don't have to be a scientist to get excited about breakthroughs in theoretical physics. Discoveries such as gravitational waves and the Higgs boson can inspire wonder at the complex beauty of the universe no matter how little you really understand them.

    3. Scientists glimpse Einstein's gravitational waves

      AFP via Yahoo! NewsFeb 11 12:39 PM

      In a landmark discovery for physics and astronomy, scientists said Thursday they have glimpsed the first direct evidence of gravitational waves, ripples in the fabric of space-time that Albert Einstein predicted a century ago. When two black holes collided some 1.3 billion years ago, the joining of those two great masses sent forth a wobble that hurtled through space and reached Earth on ...

    7. Baby physics

      Science DailyFeb 10 06:53 PM

      We are born with a basic grasp of physics, just enough not to be surprised when we interact with objects. Scientists discovered this in the past two decades. What they did not know yet was that, as early as five months of age, this 'naive' physics also extends to liquids and materials that do not behave like solids (for example, sand), as demonstrated by a new study.
