Just as a wine glass distorts an image showing temperature fluctuations in the cosmic microwave background in this photo illustration, large objects like galaxy clusters and galaxies can similarly distort this light to produce lensing effects.

New method to provide a clearer window into dark universe

The cosmic microwave background (CMB) is thought to be leftover radiation from the Big Bang or the time when the universe began. Also known...
A new paper outlines a method to directly detect particles from the 'dark world' using the Large Hadron Collider. Until now we've only been able to make indirect measurements and simulations, such as the visualization of dark matter above.

Scientists discovered a way to trap mysterious dark matter

It is a complete mystery. But it is an important mystery. It turns out that roughly 68% of the universe is dark energy. Dark...
DESI “first light” image of the Whirlpool Galaxy, also known as Messier 51. This image was obtained the first night of observing with the DESI Commissioning Instrument on the Mayall Telescope at the Kitt Peak National Observatory in Tucson, Arizona; an r-band filter was used to capture the red light from the galaxy.

Dark Energy Instrument’s Lenses See the Night Sky for the First Time

On April 1, the dome of the Mayall Telescope near Tucson, Arizona, opened to the night sky, and starlight poured through the assembly of...

Our universe may be sitting on a bubble within an extra dimension

We know that our universe is expanding at an accelerating rate, but what causes this growth remains a mystery. The most likely explanation is...
New theory could explain missing 95 percent of the cosmos

New theory could explain missing 95 percent of the cosmos

Albert Einstein provided the first hint of the dark universe exactly 100 years ago when he discovered a parameter in his equations known as...

Our universe is less lumpy than estimated

An international group of researchers has released the most in-depth wide-field map of the three-dimensional distribution of matter in the universe ever made. The...

Artificial Intelligence Analyzes Gravitational Lenses 10 Million Times Faster

For the first time, scientists at the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory and Stanford University showed that artificial intelligence can accurately analyze the complex...
