Canada’s Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics invites the public to imagine, discover, and innovate with new one-of-a-kind scientific celebration from Sept. 30 to Oct. 6.
A quasicrystal is an exotic state of matter with symmetries once thought to be impossible for matter. The concept was first introduced and the first examples were synthesized in the laboratory thirty years ago, but could Nature have beaten us to the punch?
How is a worldwide community of scientists using 16 kilometres of wide vacuum tubes to catch “ripples of space-time”? In an entirely new means of cosmic exploration, researchers at the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) Scientific Collaboration are trying to detect gravitational waves – a phenomenon theorized by Einstein almost a century ago. But what will this new window to the universe mean?
Curiosity is often said to drive science, but until the seventeenth century – the age of the so-called Scientific Revolution – it was regarded with suspicion and condemnation. What happened to liberate curiosity? Why did no question seem too vast or trivial to be ruled out of bounds? And what does the freedom to be curious really mean for science today?
