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

Dark Matter: CRESST Searches for 'Lightweights'

Sep. 8, 2015 — Scientists have searched for the particles of dark matter in numerous experiments - so far, in vain. With the CRESST experiment, now the search radius can be considerably expanded: the CRESST ... read more

Aug. 27, 2015 — Physicists have found a radical new way confine electromagnetic energy without it leaking away, akin to throwing a pebble into a pond with no splash.The theory could have broad ranging applications ... read more

Aug. 20, 2015 — Results of the XENON100 experiment are a bright spot in the search for dark matter. The team of international scientists involved in the project demonstrated the sensitivity of their detector and ... read more

Aug. 20, 2015 — Is dark energy hard to detect because it's hiding from us? According to a recent theory, hypothetical particles called chameleons vary in mass depending on nearby matter: in the vacuum of space, ... read more

Aug. 20, 2015 — Physicists suggest a new way to look for dark matter: They beleive that dark matter particles annihilate into so-called dark radiation when they collide. If true, then we should be able to detect the ... read more

Aug. 19, 2015 — By combining theory and observation, astrophysicists may have solved one of the ultimate mysteries about stars: what causes Type 1a supernovae, stellar explosions that can outshine whole galaxies. ... read more

Aug. 19, 2015 — A newly discovered dwarf galaxy orbiting our own Milky Way has offered up a surprise -- it appears to be radiating gamma rays, according to an analysis by physicists. The exact source of this ... read more
