Buzz60 (Dec. 14, 2012) German scientists are testing a theory that 'The Matrix' is real and the universe is really just a computer simulation. The scientists cite the laws of physics and constraints on energy particles as evidence. And, they believe we're not the first civilization advanced enough to run these complex universe models. But not everyone in the science community is thrilled with this assertion.

Astronomy What Is the Phenomenon Called "Dark Energy"?

Deutsche Welle (July 8, 2012) Last year the Nobel Prize for Physics was awarded for the discovery that the universe is expanding at an increasing pace. The reason, according to theory, has to be an unknown, dark energy. German astrophysicist Thomas Reiprich set out to find out more about this phenomenon, for example, how much of the stuff exists. His tools might seem modest: telescope shots of galaxies and high-performance computers. Reiprich's work, however, addresses a major issue in the world of astrophysics, and further Nobel Prizes coming from this area are not unlikely.

Physicists Seek Animated Answers to Dark Secrets of the Universe

Reuters (Nov. 29, 2012) Physicists at the Argonne National Laboratory in Illinois hope to unravel the mysteries of dark matter and dark energy with the most detailed computer simulations of the universe ever built. The two theoretical forces have never been detected but are believed to make up more than 95 percent of the universe The researchers want to know what the forces are and how they work.
