However, the observed effect cannot be explained in purely physical terms and can only be understood if psychological aspects are also considered. The results have been published in the journal PLoS ONE. More: Psychological effect against pushing and shoving …

Eighty years after the discovery of the neutron, a team of physicists from France, Germany, and Hungary headed by Zoltán Fodor, a researcher from Wuppertal, has finally calculated the tiny neutron-proton mass difference. The findings are considered a milestone by many physicists and confirm the theory of the strong interaction. More: Theory of the Strong Interaction Verified …
