    Longevity. Xenon 124. Universe.

    Theory predicts the isotope’s radioactive decay has a half-life that surpasses the age of the universe “by many orders of magnitude,” but no evidence of the process has appeared until now. An international team of physicists that includes three Rice University researchers – assistant professor Christopher Tunnell, visiting scientist Junji Naganoma and assistant research professor […]

    Researchers have devised a new model for the universe – one that may solve the enigma of dark energy. They propose a new structural concept, including dark energy, for a universe that rides on an expanding bubble in an additional dimension. The whole Universe is accommodated on the edge of this expanding bubble. All existing […]

    Complexity. Animals. Life. Death. Evolution. You.

    In the beginning, life was small. For billions of years, all life on Earth was microscopic, consisting mostly of single cells. Then suddenly, about 570 million years ago, complex organisms including animals with soft, sponge-like bodies up to a meter long sprang to life. And for 15 million years, life at this size and complexity […]
