Albert Einstein published his theory of general relativity on December 2, 1915.
The Aspen Center for Physics, a mountain retreat for theoretical physicists, turns 50 this year.
The universe is full of invisible stuff. Take dark matter--you can't spot it with your eyes, but it outnumbers visible matter five to one!
Will Congress cut funding for Hubble’s successor?
We'll talk about the mind-boggling idea that stuff we can't see within our visible universe could be causing gravitational effects on visible matter.

The nautilus, the “living fossil” of cephalopods, can uncover the origins of the...
Could a stash of ancient bones be the work of a giant cephalopod?
In less than a second, cephalopods can change the color, pattern and shape of th...
