The most-read stories of 2020 take us from the depths of the mind to the edges of the universe.
Australian researchers have found the ideal position for qubits in silicon - a development that will help them to scale up atom-based quantum computers.
A faraway galaxy with almost no dark matter has threatened to break our theory of galaxy formation. New evidence suggests the galaxy isn’t an anomaly – but a victim of theft.
The Australian-led GALAH project has released chemical information for 600,000 stars.
Scientists have trained an artificial intelligence (AI) to help understand the evolution of young stars and their planets – a new benchmark in the use of AI in astronomy.
It’s not rocket science – or is it? A UNSW Sydney astronomer explains how the right sci-fi watchlist can make physics easier to understand.
Scientists find remnant of strange dismembered star cluster at Galaxy’s edge
Stars viewed from a place called Dome A in Antarctica can finally be seen without their twinkle – which means in much greater detail.
A team led by UNSW scientists have significantly increased the coherence time of a spin-orbit qubit in silicon, allowing them to preserve quantum information for longer. These results open up a new pathway to scale silicon quantum computers.
An astrophysicist shares tips on how to make the most of the Winter Solstice this weekend – and you don’t even need equipment to start exploring the sky.
