Bright Sparks Shed New Light on the Dark Matter Riddle

Feb. 1, 2016 — The origin of matter in the universe has puzzled physicists for generations. Today, we know that matter only accounts for 5 percent of our universe; another 25 percent is constituted of dark matter. ... read more

Jan. 25, 2016 — Black holes sound too strange to be real. But they are actually pretty common in space. There are dozens known and probably millions more in the Milky Way and a billion times that lurking outside. ... read more

Jan. 25, 2016 — An international team of researchers has shown that the relationship between galaxy clusters and their surrounding dark matter halo is more complex than previously thought. The researchers' ... read more

Jan. 14, 2016 — A new theory suggests a shorter secondary inflationary period that could account for the amount of dark matter estimated to exist throughout the ... read more

Jan. 7, 2016 — A trio of brightly pulsating stars at the outskirts of the Milky Way is racing away from the galaxy and may confirm a method for detecting dwarf galaxies dominated by dark matter and explain ripples ... read more

Dec. 16, 2015 — The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope has captured the image of the first-ever predicted supernova explosion. The reappearance of the Refsdal supernova was calculated from different models of the ... read more

Dec. 15, 2015 — ESO telescopes have provided an international team of astronomers with the gift of the third dimension in a plus-sized hunt for the largest gravitationally bound structures in the Universe — galaxy ... read more

Dec. 14, 2015 — The Large Underground Xenon (LUX) dark matter experiment, which operates nearly a mile underground at the Sanford Underground Research Facility in the Black Hills of South Dakota, has already proven ... read more

Dec. 4, 2015 — Astronomers discovered a nest of monstrous baby galaxies 11.5 billion light-years away. The young galaxies seem to reside at the junction of gigantic filaments in a web of dark matter. These findings ... read more

Dec. 2, 2015 — Matter known as ordinary, which makes up everything we know, corresponds to only 5% of the Universe. Approximately half of this percentage still eluded detection. Numerical simulations made it ... read more

Nov. 18, 2015 — A researcher has measured what could be the highest concentration of dark matter in any known ... read more

Nov. 11, 2015 — A new machine-learning simulation system promises cosmologists an expanded suite of galaxy models -- a necessary first step to developing more accurate and relevant insights into the formation of the ... read more

Nov. 9, 2015 — The CALorimetric Electron Telescope (CALET) investigation will rely on the instrument to track the trajectory of cosmic ray particles and measure their charge and energy. The instrument is optimized ... read more

Oct. 29, 2015 — Researchers are sifting through an avalanche of data produced by one of the largest cosmological simulations ever ... read more

Oct. 21, 2015 — The world's most elaborate cosmological simulation of the evolution of our universe was recently completed by astrophysicists. For the first time, a hydrodynamic cosmological simulation is large ... read more

Oct. 14, 2015 — Dark smudges almost block out a rich star field in this new image captured by the MPG/ESO 2.2-meter telescope at ESO's La Silla Observatory in Chile. The inky areas are small parts of a huge ... read more

High-Powered Telescope Designed to Explore Origins of Universe Moving Toward 'First Light'

Sep. 30, 2015 — An effort to peer into the origins of the universe with the most effective instrument ever used in the effort is taking a big step forward, as scientists begin shipping a two-story-tall microwave ... read more

Sep. 24, 2015 — Scientists have come up with a new theory that may identify why dark matter has evaded direct detection in Earth-based ... read more

Sep. 24, 2015 — Citizen scientists have helped an international team of researchers to discover 29 new gravitational lens candidates in galaxies far ... read more

Sep. 18, 2015 — If only calculating the distance between Earth and far-off galaxies was as easy as pulling out the old measuring tape. Now researchers are proposing a new way to calculate distances in the cosmos ... read more
