Perimeter offers a "Slice of PI".
Sometimes the best kind of scientific collaborator is a silent partner who lends a hand (or a paw) simply by keeping things uncomplicated.
Edwin Hubble was a man of great talent, exceptional dedication, and excellent timing who reshaped our view of the universe. To commemorate Hubble's birthday, the latest Slice of PI looks at the incredible life and legacy of a man who helped humanity see farther.
Chalkboards are everywhere at Perimeter Institute, but one took on a new dimension at the hands of Perimeter's inaugural Coalescence Artist-in-Residence, Alexa Meade.
To commemorate some big anniversaries in science and sci-fi, Perimeter Institute researchers, students, and staff reflect on fantastical figments that science has made real.
To mark the 100-year anniversary of the theory that re-wrote the rule book of physics, Perimeter presents an overview of general relativity, alphabetized for your convenience.
They discovered pulsars, found the first evidence of dark matter, pioneered mathematics, radioactivity, nuclear fission, elasticity, and computer programming, and have even stopped light.
In celebration of the International Year of Light, Perimeter Institute presents 20 fascinating factoids about photons.
For Perimeter postdoc David “Doddy” Marsh, skateboarding and theoretical physics are two halves of his whole – sometimes complementary, sometimes in opposition, both essential.
We present a unique look at the most famous thought experiment in quantum physics, in which an unfortunate (and, rest assured, purely hypothetical) cat sacrifices its life, yet also doesn’t, for the sake of science.
