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...

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...
Astronomers have just assembled one of the most comprehensive portraits yet of the universe’s evolutionary history, based on a broad spectrum of observations by the Hubble Space Telescope and other space and ground-based telescopes. In particular, Hubble’s ultraviolet vision opens a new window on the evolving universe, tracking the birth of stars over the last 11 billion years back to the cosmos’ busiest star-forming period, about 3 billion years after the big bang. This photo encompasses a sea of approximately 15,000 galaxies — 12,000 of which are star-forming — widely distributed in time and space. This mosaic is 14 times the area of the Hubble Ultra Violet Ultra Deep Field released in 2014. Credits: NASA, ESA, P. Oesch (University of Geneva), and M. Montes (University of New South Wales)

Hubble paints picture of the evolving universe

Ultraviolet light has been the missing piece to the cosmic puzzle. Presently, combined with infrared and noticeable light information from Hubble and other space...

Astronomers detected mysterious radio signal coming from space

Stargazers have recognized yet another strange and intense fast radio burst hitting Earth from an unknown source in space. The radio burst is fantastically...

Could gravitational waves reveal how fast our universe is expanding?

Astronomers have directed telescopes toward specific stars and other astronomical sources to quantify their distance from Earth and how quick they are moving far...

New strategies to discover life beyond Earth

Researchers currently think we might have the capacity to identify indications of life on planets beyond our solar system in the following couple of...
The first plasma, a milestone event signaling the beginning of research capabilities, was captured on camera on Sunday, March 5, at 8:13 p.m. at Jadwin Hall at Princeton University, and marked completion of the four-year construction of the device, the Facility for Laboratory Reconnection Experiment (FLARE).
