    During 12 unforgettable months in the middle of the turbulent '60s, America saw the rise of innovative new sounds that would change popular music as we knew it. In 1965: The Most Revolutionary Year in Music, music historian Andrew Grant Jackson (Still the Greatest: The Essential Songs of The Beatles' Solo Careers) chronicles a groundbreaking year of creativity fueled by rivalries between musicians and continents, sweeping social changes, and technological breakthroughs.

    Intricate quantum connections between microscopic particles almost certainly underlie some phenomena perceivable at human scales. Now, for the first time, physicists have measured these connections, known as quantum entanglement, between pairs of photons within a macroscopic beam of light. It’s a step toward understanding how the rules of quantum mechanics scale up to phenomena such as superconductivity that involve large numbers of particles.

    Although atom-thick sheets of carbon called graphene have many extraordinary properties, magnetism isn’t one of them. But a new study reveals that graphene can simply borrow the magnetic properties of a nearby material.

    A new experiment checks all the boxes in validating the weirdness of quantum physics. The first demonstration of a loophole-free Bell test, reported October 21 in Nature, confirms that particles coaxed into a state called entanglement share a relationship that cannot be explained by the physical laws that govern everyday life.

    Choose Your Own Adventure books are fun, but they limit readers to only one version of events at a time. Quantum mechanics, a new experiment suggests, requires that multiple adventures occur simultaneously to create a consistent account of history.

    Churchill is Prime Minister for the last time. Rationing is still in force. All music sounds like the BBC Radiophonic Workshop. People like living in 1952: it's familiar and reassuring, and Britain knows its place in the world. Few have noticed it's been 1952 for the past 65 years. Meet Professor Quanderhorn; a brilliant, maverick scientific genius who has absolutely no moral compass. With his Dangerous Giant Space Laser, High Rise Farm, Invisible Robot and Fleet of Monkey-driven Lorries, he's not afraid to push the boundaries of science to their very limit.

    Tightly bunched antiprotons stick together, just like their proton cousins. Physicists sifting through subatomic shrapnel inside a particle accelerator have made the first analysis of the interaction between antiprotons, particles of antimatter that are negatively charged but otherwise nearly identical to protons. The findings, published online November 4th in Nature, reveal that the strong nuclear force securely binds antiprotons in close proximity with the same intensity that it does for protons inside the nuclei of atoms.

    A new thriller starring Alabamian police Detective Cooper Devereaux, who confronts a murderer dubbed the Birthday Killer. A woman disappears on the way to her 20th birthday party. Three days later her body is found neatly laid out in the grounds of a Birmingham cemetery. The following week, a second woman disappears on her 21st birthday. Her body is discovered in a crematorium parking lot, and grisly forensic evidence leads Detective Devereaux to make a high-profile arrest.

    A grueling but ultimately successful effort to test Einstein’s 100-year-old general theory of relativity has come to a close more than half a century after it began. Twenty-one papers published online November 17 in Classical and Quantum Gravity present a detailed summation of Gravity Probe B, a satellite that in 2011 confirmed Einstein’s prediction that Earth dents and whips up the spacetime around it.

    A raindrop doesn’t just go splat when it hits the ground. A fizz emanates from each drop, a new study published January 14 in Nature Communications reveals, transporting chemicals from the ground into the air. This mechanism may create the earthy aroma after a rainstorm.
