In 1905, Einstein made major changes to laws of physics when he established his theory of relativity. Now Einstein's laws might also undergo significant changes. Dimitri Nanopoulos, who holds the rank of Distinguished Professor of Physics at Texas A&M University and heads the Houston Advanced Research Center's Group for Astroparticle Physics, established, along with other physicists, that the speed of light, instead of being the constant value of 186,282 miles per second, might change...

From DieHards to Delcos, most car batteries are pretty much created equal: they eventually lose their juice. Two Texas A&M University physicists are looking into ways to keep batteries going and going and going, and finding answers that embrace both biology and chemistry. Their project also hints at something that has puzzled biologists for more than 100 years: creation of electrical fields around plant roots while they grow...

Theoretical physicist Michael Duff is trying to change the shape of the universe or at least the shape of the stuff it is made of. If theories proposed over the past year by Duff and his colleagues in Texas A&M University's Center for Theoretical Physics hold up, particles that are the building blocks of the universe may change from infinitely tiny points to bubbles and sheets and tubes...
