August 21, 2013 It's time to reconsider the grand quest for "unification" in modern physics, says commentator Marcelo Gleiser. Our unrelenting search for symmetry and perfection in the natural world leaves us blind to data that seems to depict an imperfect and asymmetric Universe.
March 6, 2013 As scientists advance their understanding of how the Earth has changed through billions of years, it becomes increasingly clear that the Earth and the life on it are entwined in unique ways. Commentator Marcelo Gleiser goes in search of the origins of life in a meeting of the minds at CERN.
February 27, 2013 The Universe could end tomorrow, courtesy of the newly-discovered Higgs. But, as commentator Marcelo Gleiser explains, there is really no need to panic.
February 27, 2013 Scientists have found a Higgs-like particle, a key component in modern physics theory. But is it the Higgs particle, or a new one, part of a more complex model?
July 4, 2012 Count your money or look to the stars, either way, the discovery of the Higgs is significant and a significant step forward for humanity.
July 2, 2012 Scientists at the Tevatron may be announcing their own results on the Higgs search today.
February 29, 2012 It seems that neutrinos are not faster than light after all. Were scientist wrong in blowing their the trumpets before being sure?
February 28, 2012 What makes science so powerful is not just the admission of mistakes, it's also the detailing of mistakes.
December 13, 2011 The Higgs might be found. The Higgs might not be found. After all that time and all that effort, the Higgs might not exist in the energies we can probe or, might not exist at all. More data, more observation will eventually give us the answer.
June 7, 2011 The strange existence of anti-matter and its radical imbalance as a cosmic constituent is a fundamental mystery that has persisted for eight decades. We may finally be poised to understand not only the universe that is but also the universe that might have been.
April 27, 2011 Rumors that the Higgs particle (aka the God particle) has been found teach us how large-scale science projects work and how science advances
November 17, 2010 The discovery has the potential to lead the way to whole new understanding of fundamental physics.
