Apr. 7, 2016 — A research team has achieved unparalleled levels of control over the angular momentum (AM) of light in an integrated nanophotonic chip. The work leads the way for compact on-chip AM applications like ... read more

Apr. 6, 2016 — One of the largest supermassive black holes on record has been discovered in an unexpected place: a relatively sparse region of the local universe where massive galaxies -- the typical home of these ... read more

Apr. 6, 2016 — Astrophysicists have revealed details of how supermassive black holes formed 13 billion years ago, and it's not from normal (stellar size) black holes growing to supermassive ... read more

Apr. 5, 2016 — New results from NANOGrav -- the North American Nanohertz Observatory for Gravitational Waves -- establish astrophysically significant limits in the search for low-frequency gravitational waves. This ... read more

Mar. 30, 2016 — Scientists have determined the likely trigger for the most recent supernova in the Milky Way. They applied a new technique that could have implications for understanding other Type Ia supernovas, a ... read more

Mar. 30, 2016 — Simulations have revealed for the first time exactly how these black holes formed 700 million years after the Big ... read more

Mar. 24, 2016 — Calculations by scientists have found highly magnetized, rapidly spinning neutron stars called magnetars could explain the energy source behind two extremely unusual stellar ... read more

In Human Development Research, Big Data Could Mean Better Results

Mar. 23, 2016 — While there is no Hubble telescope gathering data about the universe of human development, projects to make large amounts of information -- big data -- more accessible to developmental researchers ... read more

Mar. 23, 2016 — Researchers have observed 17 bright distant galaxies with the MOSFIRE high-resolution near-infrared spectrometer at the W. M. Keck Observatory telescopes. Then, they combined the spectra with ... read more

Mar. 23, 2016 — Research has found new persuasive evidence that could help solve a longstanding mystery in astrophysics: why did the pace of star formation in the universe slow down some 11 billion years ... read more

Mar. 22, 2016 — Astronomers report that they have observed the most luminous galaxies ever seen in the Universe, objects so bright that established descriptors such as 'ultra-' and ... read more

Mar. 21, 2016 — The lightest few elements in the periodic table formed minutes after the Big Bang. Heavier chemical elements are created by stars, either from nuclear fusion in their interiors or in catastrophic ... read more

Mar. 21, 2016 — Researchers have found the fastest winds ever seen at ultraviolet wavelengths near a supermassive black hole. Some are reaching as fast as 200 million kilometers, equivalent to a category 77 ... read more

Mar. 14, 2016 — Big Bang neutrinos are believed to be everywhere in the universe but have never been seen. The expansion of the universe has stretched them and they are thought to be billions of times colder than ... read more

What Dark Matter Might Be

Mar. 14, 2016 — There are indications that we might never see the universe's mysterious dark matter. Now researchers turn this somehow depressing scenario into an advantage and propose a new model for what dark ... read more

Mar. 10, 2016 — Astronomers have detected the faintest millimeter-wave source ever observed. By accumulating millimeter-waves from faint objects throughout the Universe, the team finally determined that such objects ... read more

Mar. 10, 2016 — Researchers have discovered about 80 young galaxies in the early universe about 1.2 billion years after the Big Bang. They made detailed analyses of imaging data by the Hubble Space Telescope. Among ... read more

High Throughput Computing Helps LIGO Confirm Einstein’s Last Unproven Theory

Mar. 8, 2016 — A few years ago, a global team of scientists parlayed decades of research into the discovery of the Higgs boson. A humble software program called HTCondor churned away in the background, helping ... read more

Mar. 7, 2016 — The universe is constantly expanding. But how does our universe evolve? Physicists have now developed a new code of numerical simulations that offers a glimpse of the complex process of the formation ... read more

Mar. 3, 2016 — By pushing the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope to its limits astronomers have shattered the cosmic distance record by measuring the distance to the most remote galaxy ever seen in the Universe. This ... read more
