Better Defining the Signals Left by as-Yet-Undefined Dark Matter at the LHC

July 26, 2016 — Physicists still don't exactly know what dark matter is. Indeed, they can only see its effect in the form of gravity. Now, the high energy physics community has developed a set of simplified ... read more

July 25, 2016 — Astronomers have discovered for the first time that the hot gas in the halo of the Milky Way galaxy is spinning in the same direction and at comparable speed as the galaxy's disk, which contains ... read more

July 21, 2016 — Fifty years ago Captain Kirk and the crew of the starship Enterprise began their journey into space -- the final frontier. Now, as the newest Star Trek film hits cinemas, the NASA/ESA Hubble space ... read more

July 21, 2016 — The Large Underground Xenon (LUX) dark matter experiment, which operates beneath a mile of rock at the Sanford Underground Research Facility in the Black Hills of South Dakota, has completed its ... read more

July 14, 2016 — A team of hundreds of physicists and astronomers has announced results from the largest-ever, three-dimensional map of distant galaxies. The team constructed this map to make one of the most precise ... read more

Accelerating Research Into Dark Energy

July 7, 2016 — A quick method for making accurate, virtual universes to help understand the effects of dark matter and dark energy has been developed by scientists. Making up 95 percent of our universe, these ... read more

June 30, 2016 — Euclid satellite, due for launch in 2020, will set astronomers a huge challenge: to analyze one hundred thousand strong gravitational lenses. The gravitational deflection of light from distant ... read more

‘Building Blocks for Life' May Originate in Space

June 28, 2016 — Amino acids are the building blocks for life on earth. They may originate in space and reach the earth via comets and ... read more

June 23, 2016 — New images confirm the presence of a dark vortex on Neptune. Though similar features were seen during the Voyager 2 flyby of NASA's Hubble Space Telescope in 1989 and by Hubble in 1994, this ... read more

June 23, 2016 — Hydrogen is the most-abundant element in the universe, but there is still so much we have to learn about it. One of the biggest unknowns is its transformation under the extreme pressures and ... read more

June 22, 2016 — Our universe came to life nearly 14 billion years ago in the Big Bang -- a tremendously energetic fireball from which the cosmos has been expanding ever since. Today, space is filled with hundreds of ... read more

June 15, 2016 — When an astronomical observatory detected two black holes colliding in deep space, scientists celebrated confirmation of Einstein's prediction of gravitational waves. A team of astrophysicists ... read more

June 2, 2016 — Hubble Space Telescope astronomers have discovered that the universe is expanding 5-9% percent faster than expected. They made the discovery by refining the universe's current expansion rate to ... read more

May 31, 2016 — It is a galactic challenge, to be sure, but Gwendolyn Eadie is getting closer to an accurate answer to a question that has defined her early career in astrophysics: what is the mass of the Milky ... read more

Decoding Light for Clues About Dark Matter

May 29, 2016 — An international team of researchers is developing an instrument that will decode the light of the night sky to understand the nature of dark ... read more

May 24, 2016 — An intriguing alternative view is that dark matter is made of black holes formed during the first second of our universe's existence, known as primordial black holes. A scientist suggests that ... read more

You Were Right: Rotational Motion Is Relative, Too, Mr. Einstein!

May 18, 2016 — It has been one hundred100 years since the publication of Einstein's general theory of relativity in May 1916. Physicists have now demonstrated that the rotational motion in the universe is also ... read more

May 4, 2016 — Astronomers have discovered the second-strongest merger shock in clusters of galaxies ever ... read more

Apr. 22, 2016 — Researchers are getting closer to corner light dark-matter particle models. Observations can rule out some axion-like particles in the quest for the content of dark ... read more

Apr. 21, 2016 — Innovative multidisciplinary research in nuclear and particle physics and cosmology has led to the development of a new, more accurate computer code to study the early ... read more
