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...

Hubble captures stars across generations

The large-scale structure of the Universe is made up of voids and filaments, that can be broken down into superclusters, clusters, galaxy groups, and...

We might be able to transfer data through gravitational waves

Gravitational waves are 'ripples' in the fabric of space-time caused by some of the most violent and energetic processes in the Universe. Gravitational waves are...

Why NASA watches Airglow, the colors of the (upper atmospheric) wind?

Earth is the only planet where life has been found. What Does Earth Look Like from space? From space, Earth looks like a blue marble with white swirls. But getting closer...

Illuminating the dark matter with gravitational waves

Using Laser Interferometer Space Antenna (LISA), a team of astronomers at the University of Zurich have observed gravitational waves emitted by black holes. These shock...
An international team of astronomers using the VIMOS instrument of ESO’s Very Large Telescope have uncovered a colossal structure in the early Universe. This galaxy proto-supercluster — which they nickname Hyperion — was unveiled by new measurements and a complex examination of archive data. This is the largest and most massive structure yet found at such a remote time and distance — merely 2 billion years after the Big Bang. This visualization shows Hyperion and is based on real data.

Largest Galaxy Proto-Supercluster Found

An international team of astronomers using the VIMOS instrument of ESO’s Very Large Telescope have uncovered a titanic structure in the early Universe. This...
Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE)

World’s largest neutrino detector brings scientists closer to understanding the universe

A group of international scientists is a step closer to address the most fundamental question of the universe: Why we are here? The experiment 'Deep...

New simulation sheds light on spiraling Supermassive black holes

Another model is conveying researchers a bit nearer to understanding the sorts of light signals created when two supermassive black holes, which are millions...
Deep observations made with the MUSE spectrograph on ESO’s Very Large Telescope have uncovered vast cosmic reservoirs of atomic hydrogen surrounding distant galaxies. The exquisite sensitivity of MUSE allowed for direct observations of dim clouds of hydrogen glowing with Lyman-alpha emission in the early Universe — revealing that almost the whole night sky is invisibly aglow.

MUSE spectrograph reveals that nearly the entire sky in the early Universe

An unexpected abundance of Lyman-alpha emission in the Hubble Ultra Deep Field (HUDF) region was discovered by an international team of astronomers using the...
