  • Baryogenesis
    In physical cosmology, baryogenesis is the generic term for the hypothetical physical processes that produced an asymmetry (imbalance) between baryons and antibaryons produced in the very early universe.
  • Inertial confinement fusion
    Inertial confinement fusion (ICF) is a type of fusion energy research that attempts to initiate nuclear fusion reactions by heating and compressing a fuel target, typically in the form of a pellet that most often contains a mixture of deuterium and tritium.
  • Naga fireball
    Naga fireballs (Thai: บั้งไฟพญานาค; rtgs: bang fai phaya nak), also known as Mekong lights, and "bung fai paya nak" by the locals, is a phenomenon said to be often seen on the Mekong River.
  • Ball lightning
    Ball lightning is an unexplained atmospheric electrical phenomenon.
  • Dark energy
    In physical cosmology and astronomy, dark energy is an unknown form of energy which is hypothesized to permeate all of space, tending to accelerate the expansion of the universe.
  • Higgs boson
    ("God Particle" redirects here. For the upcoming sci-fi film, see God Particle (film).) The Higgs boson is an elementary particle in the Standard Model of particle physics.
  • Higgs mechanism
    In the Standard Model of particle physics, the Higgs mechanism is essential to explain the generation mechanism of the property "mass" for gauge bosons.
  • List of particles
    This is a list of the different types of particles found or believed to exist in the whole of the universe.
  • List of unsolved problems in physics
    Some of the major unsolved problems in physics are theoretical, meaning that existing theories seem incapable of explaining a certain observed phenomenon or experimental result.
  • Quantum computing
    Quantum computing studies theoretical computation systems (quantum computers) that make direct use of quantum-mechanical phenomena, such as superposition and entanglement, to perform operations on data.
  • Tunguska event
    The Tunguska event was a large explosion that occurred near the Stony Tunguska River, in Yeniseysk Governorate (now Krasnoyarsk Krai), Russia, on the morning of 30 June 1908 (N.S.).
  • Unified field theory
    In physics, a unified field theory (UFT), occasionally referred to as a uniform field theory, is a type of field theory that allows all that is usually thought of as fundamental forces and elementary particles to be written in terms of a single field.
  • Accretion disk
    An accretion disk is a structure (often a circumstellar disk) formed by diffused material in orbital motion around a massive central body.
  • Arrow of time
    The Arrow of Time, or Time's Arrow, is a concept developed in 1927 by the British astronomer Arthur Eddington involving the "one-way direction" or "asymmetry" of time.
  • Cold fusion
    Cold fusion is a hypothesized type of nuclear reaction that would occur at, or near, room temperature.
  • Shape of the universe
    The shape of the universe is the and of the Universe, in terms of both curvature and topology (though, strictly speaking, the concept goes beyond both).
  • Dark flow
    Dark flow is an astrophysical term describing a possible non-random component of the peculiar velocity of galaxy clusters.
  • Hessdalen lights
    The Hessdalen lights are unexplained nocturnal lights observed in a 7.
