Researchers from the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) have identified another way to help reduce rising global temperatures, by injecting light-reflecting particles in a process called solar geoengineering.
The electrons can move up to speeds approaching the speed of light.
In 1974, Stephen Hawking theorized that black holes may not be entirely dark and that there might be a way out of it. Today, a scientist thinks that he might have just proven this theory.
Scientists have for the first time simulated the creation of particle and antiparticle pairs in a quantum computer.
Both short- and long-term exposure to vehicle exhaust, coal burning and dust particles may cause high blood pressure, a major risk factor for coronary heart disease.
Fireworks and bonfires may be a fun way to celebrate national holidays, but the smoke and other particles emitted into the atmosphere can reduce visibility by 25 percent. Visibility can be further reduced when humidity is high and particles absorb more moisture.
Aerosol particles ejected into the air following volcanic eruptions can trigger rainfall shortages that ultimately alter river systems worldwide.
Scientists have recently discovered that the Moon is engulfed in a permanent, lopsided dust cloud that could affect future space travel, a new study says.
You might think that only high levels of air pollution above the EPA standard are dangerous, but new research shows that even low-level air pollution poses a risk to the human population, and is linked to death.
After an intermittent short-circuit put a dent in scientists' plans, CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC) finally began its powerful restart after a 2-year shutdown, officials said.
After being shut down for two years, a short-circuit has stalled the much-anticipated restart of CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the particle smashing machine that famously discovered the Higgs boson, officials announced Wednesday.
New research has found that magnets can manipulate heat and sound, a discovery that can potentially lead to practical applications in the future.
For the first time ever, researchers have managed to capture on camera light behaving as both a particle and a wave, a new study describes.
Scientists may have finally solved the mysterious origin of matter in the Universe, something that had puzzled physicists for many years, according to a new study.
