The Feynman Diagrams Are "Outdated?"

Physicists Nima Arkani-Hamed and Jaroslav Trnka recently published a significant advance in the study of Scattering Amplitudes. These are formulas that physicists use to calculate everything from the chance an unstable particle will decay to the probability of new discoveries at the Large Hadron Collider. The two reformulated scattering amplitudes within a popular framework called N=4 super Yang-Mills, treating them as properties of abstract geometrical objects. In doing so, Arkani-Hamed and Trnka hope to gain a deeper understanding of the nature of quantum field theory.

That's a Cocktail?

If you want your shindig to stand out, you should ditch that traditional booze, morph yourself into a cocktail alchemist and one-up your friends and coworkers with science...

The Ouya isn't your standard liquid cocktail. It's served as liquid-filled beads formed using a technique known as reverse spherification, a fancy term for turning liquids or liquefied foods into gel-covered, liquid-filled spheres that pop in your mouth.

Check out the full recipe here.

he most complete sequence to date of the Neanderthal genome, using DNA extracted from a woman's toe bone that dates back 50,000 years, reveals a long history of interbreeding among at least four different types of early humans living in Europe and Asia at that time, according to UC Berkeley scientists.
