Dissolving Quantum Paradoxes
The impossibility of building a perfect clock could help explain away microscale weirdness.

Constructing a Theory of Life
An all-encompassing framework of physics could help to explain the evolution of consciousness, intelligence, and free will.

Usurping Quantum Theory
The search is on for a fundamental framework that allows for even stranger links between particles than quantum theory—which could lead us to a theory of everything.

Fuzzballs v Black Holes
A radical theory replaces the cosmic crunchers with fuzzy quantum spheres, potentially solving the black-hole information paradox and explaining away the Big Bang and the origin of time.

Whose Physics Is It Anyway? Q&A with Chanda Prescod-Weinstein
Why physics and astronomy communities must take diversity issues seriously in order to do good science.

Neutrino Mysteries
The source of a high-energy neutrino detected at the South Pole has been traced for the first time--to a distant galaxy 4 billion light years away. Astrophysicist Azadeh Keivani tells us how this was done, with the help of multiple observatories. Meanwhile, physicists working at the Miniboone experiment may have spotted signs of new physics--possibly a new type of 'sterile' neutrino. Physicist Richard Van de Water explains more.

Fuzzballs Solve Black Hole Paradox
String theorist Samir Mathur has developed a model in which black holes are replaced by fuzzy balls of string, with no singularities and no event horizon. He explains to Sophie Hebden how fuzzballs solve the black hole information paradox and may rewrite the Big Bang.

Almost Quantum
Physicist Miguel Navascues is on a mission to overturn quantum theory and replace it with a deeper framework, with almost--but not quite--the same set of weird properties of quantum theory, as he explains to reporter Colin Stuart.

Testing Free Will with AI
Could developments in machine learning give scientists a way to test if free will is real, an emergent phenomenon, or an illusion? Physicist Avi Loeb explains to reporter John Farrell how he thinks they could--and why this is important for our sense of moral responsibility.
