Jupiter's magnetic field has changed since the 1970s, and now physicists think they know why it's happening.

New analysis suggests gravitational waves leave lasting marks on the particles they strike. Alan Duffy reports.

A detector designed to hunt for dark matter has made a particle physics observation that will hopefully help physicists establish important truths about our Universe. No, it didn’t spot dark matter, but the new result proves that these ultra-sensitive detectors are valuable to scientists for multiple reasons.

A basic guide to one of the most important APS advocacy programs.

The Large Hadron Collider allowed us to complete the Standard Model. Even so, what we have is incomplete. Here's what could come next.

APS will host a combined conference from the APS Bridge Program and National Mentoring Community. This conference will focus on strengthening mentor relationships, building firm foundations to create a successful Bridge student experience, and providing knowledge through discussions

The European Southern Observatory's Very Large Telescope in Chile has been watching the supermassive black hole in the center of

We point out unconventional mechanical properties of confined active fluids, such as bacterial suspensions, under shear. Using a minimal model of an active liquid crystal with no free parameters, we predict the existence of a window of bacteria concentration for which a suspension of E. Coli effectively behaves, at steady-state, as a negative viscosity fluid and reach a quantitative agreement with experimental measurements. Our theoretical analysis…

One of the more confusing things around the mobile first index is will page speed be a factor or not when it launches. Google has said no, it won't be and then they said yes it will be.It seems like

Yesterday we covered how a link seller was trying to sell links to a Googler and we posted some advice around that not being the best idea. Well, later on Gary Illyes confirmed that Google is good at

You can't make great beer without clean water. Join the Brewers for Clean Water campaign.

Beercations are a real thing, and beer tourism is at its all-time high. From people traveling to Vermont to grab the fresh IPAs to running wild in the streets of Asheville’s unbelievable craft beer scene, beer has become more of a reason to travel than ever before. But, you don’t need to travel far to Read more...

(Inside Science) -- About 350 years ago, as the story goes, an apple fell near British physicist Isaac Newton and planted the seeds of the laws of motion. Now, in celebration of the anniversary, retired math teacher Stan Spencer has borrowed what Newton learned to create art from simulated rocket motion and get others interested in understanding science."I tend to have a sort of crazy idea like that and then go for it," said Spencer, who lives in Nottinghamshire, England. He is one…

This year's summer solstice brings a special event, as it coincides with the full strawberry moon for the first time in nearly 70 years.

The first results from the LISA Pathfinder mission demonstrate that two test masses can be put in free fall with a relative acceleration sufficiently free of noise to meet the requirements needed for space-based gravitational-wave detection.

During the "Mars opposition," which happens this Sunday, Mars will be closer to Earth than it has been for more than a decade. You can see it easily any night this weekend — no telescope necessary.
