Big Data Analytical Advances from Academia, Business Are Enhancing Exploration of Universe

Aug. 10, 2015 — Statisticians have combined state-of-the-art analytical techniques from the academic and business worlds to tackle the Big Data challenges confronting astrophysicists and astronomers as they explore ... read more

Aug. 5, 2015 — Lithium, the lightest metal, used in batteries and mood-stabilising drugs, is rarer than it should be. Models of the period after the Big Bang explain how it, hydrogen and helium were synthesised in ... read more

Aug. 4, 2015 — Astronomers have observed the nearby large spiral galaxy M81, together with its two brightest neighbors. The team obtained deep and super wide-field images of the galaxies and discovered that the ... read more

Aug. 4, 2015 — Astronomers have found what appears to be the largest feature in the observable universe: a ring of nine gamma ray bursts -- and hence galaxies - 5 billion light years ... read more

July 29, 2015 — The merger of two black holes is one of the most sought-after observations of modern astronomy. The first observatories capable of directly detecting gravitational waves -- ripples in the fabric of ... read more

July 29, 2015 — The chemical element lithium has been found for the first time in material ejected by a nova. Observations of Nova Centauri 2013 made using telescopes at ESO's La Silla Observatory, and near ... read more

July 22, 2015 — A new theory says dark matter acts remarkably similar to subatomic particles known to science since the ... read more

July 22, 2015 — The Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) has been used to detect the most distant clouds of star-forming gas yet found in normal galaxies in the early universe. The new observations ... read more

July 20, 2015 — A new investigation has found radiation from solar events is too weak to cause worry at ground ... read more

July 20, 2015 — The National Science Foundation's Green Bank Telescope will join in the most powerful, comprehensive, and intensive scientific search ever for signs of intelligent life in the ... read more

July 20, 2015 — Galaxies in a cluster roughly 300 million light years from Earth could contain as much as 100 times more dark matter than visible matter, according to an Australian ... read more

July 16, 2015 — The Gaia satellite has discovered a unique binary system where one star is 'eating' the other, but neither star has any hydrogen, the most common element in the Universe. The system could ... read more

July 15, 2015 — Since its discovery in 2005, Pluto's moon Hydra has been known only as a fuzzy dot of uncertain shape, size, and reflectivity. Imaging obtained during New Horizons' historic transit of the ... read more

July 9, 2015 — Astronomers have spotted a super-sized black hole in the early universe that grew much faster than its host galaxy. The discovery runs counter to most observations about black holes, which are ... read more

July 9, 2015 — The first results have been released from a major new dark matter survey of the southern skies using ESO's VLT Survey Telescope (VST) at the Paranal Observatory in Chile. The VST KiDS survey ... read more

July 8, 2015 — Observations have for the first time demonstrated a link between a very long-lasting burst of gamma rays and an unusually bright supernova explosion. The results show that the supernova was not ... read more

July 5, 2015 — Astronomers have found evidence for a large population of hidden supermassive black holes in the ... read more

July 2, 2015 — Researchers have begun a wide-area survey of the distribution of dark matter in the universe using Hyper Suprime-Cam, a new wide-field camera installed on the Subaru Telescope in ... read more

July 1, 2015 — There may be far fewer galaxies further out in the universe then might be expected, according to a new ... read more

June 30, 2015 — Mathematicians and physicists have come up with a new approach to calculate cosmic viscosity and the formulation favors the 'Big Rip' scenario for the end of the ... read more
