Evidence of “ripples in spacetime” detected by the LIGO Scientific Collaboration marks the dawn of gravitational wave astronomy, say Perimeter researchers.
Einstein's theory of general relativity may soon be put to the ultimate test through measurements of a black hole's shadow, says a pair of Perimeter researchers.
Perimeter researchers show how the largest possible structure – the curvature of the universe as a whole – can be used as a lens onto the smallest objects observable today, elementary particles.
Perimeter researchers Flavio Mercati, Elliot Nelson, and Niayesh Afshordi have won first and third places in the second annual Buchalter Cosmology Prize competition.
The international EHT research team, including Perimeter's Avery Broderick, has measured for the first time the magnetic fields that contribute to black hole growth.
Running sophisticated simulations on a powerful supercomputer, an international research team has glimpsed the unique turbulence that fuels stellar explosions.
Perimeter talks with virtual reality pioneer Jaron Lanier about “fashionable” science, the problems with money, and whether we should make math physical.
Sean Begy, a first-year science student at Queen’s University, has won this year’s Luke Santi Award for Student Achievement.
Ontario’s Ministry of Education and Perimeter Institute have launched a project to reach more of Ontario’s youth, including those in underserviced areas, through expanded Perimeter programming.
Physics has lost a true pioneer as well as a friend and inspiration to many in Leo Kadanoff, whose insights helped shape our modern understanding of nature.
Emmy Noether Fellow Sarah Shandera finds the best response to lingering inequality in science is to ditch the anger and funnel that energy into her work.
