    Light doesn’t always travel at the speed of light. A new experiment reveals that focusing or manipulating the structure of light pulses reduces their speed, even in vacuum conditions.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    An arsonist is targeting schools in Birmingham, Alabama - with devastating effect. Detective Devereaux - a man you can't quite trust and should never ignore - must put a stop to the elusive pyromaniac's reign of terror before more damage is done. Or worse, before students' lives are lost. But as Devereaux sifts through the ashes of the case, a grisly discovery at a burned-out school sends the investigation spiraling in a new, terrifying direction.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    David Trevellyan, a Royal Navy intelligence operative, takes a late-night walk to his New York City hotel. A huddled shape in an alley catches his eye - a homeless man has been shot to death. Trevellyan steps forward and a cop car arrives. A split second too late, Trevellyan realizes he's been set up. Obliged to clear his name, and with no idea who's a friend and who's a foe, he penetrates deep into a huge international conspiracy.
