Hints of a lightweight dark matter particle have been found in the gamma-ray glow at the Milky Way's heart. The particle's apparent mass lines up with tentative signals of dark matter in two direct-detection experiments on Earth, but other researchers caution that conventional sources – such as pulsars – may be responsible for the gamma-ray … Continue reading Hints of lightweight dark matter particle found in space

# What is Quantum Mechanics ?

Quantum mechanics, also known as quantum physics or quantum theory, is a branch of physics providing a mathematical description of much of the dual particle-like and wave-like behavior and interactions of energy and matter. It departs from classical mechanics primarily at the atomic and subatomic scales. The mathematical formulations of quantum mechanics are abstract. Similarly, … Continue reading What is Quantum Mechanics ?
