New research suggests that our trusty companion may not have been the Earth's first, but formed from several smaller moonlets.

The twelve sides of the new £1 coin make it trickier than other coins.

Mathematicians have proved a new result in the field of combinatorics.

When it comes to the entire cosmos, we humans are incredibly small and insignificant. But that's precisely why we need to take ourselves into account when thinking about the Universe. Find out why.

One way of making quantum mechanics independent of observers is to accept that we live in many parallel worlds.

Since quantum mechanics predicts such strange things about the world, should we replace it by a better theory, or perhaps extend it?

If observers can influence the outcomes of measurements, then do these observes need to be conscious? Does consciousness play a special role in physics at all?

A brief introduction to the strange theory of quantum mechanics and how it appears to afford a special role to observers.
