Cosmologists have carried out new analysis techniques on Planck's cosmic microwave background radiation data and found that some of the more mysterious features may be observational error. Continue reading →
The idea that there are an infinite number of universes beyond our own is assumed impossible to prove or disprove -- but a new computer model might give us hints as to what evidence to look for. Continue reading →
Sometimes, a discovery is announced prematurely; that's the case here.
Rumors of interfering galactic dust messing with the potentially historic BICEP2 detection of gravitational waves have been shot down by project scientists. Continue reading →
Last month's BICEP2 discovery of gravitational waves is compelling evidence for the inflationary period just after the Big Bang. But what if there's another explanation? Continue reading →
Gravitational waves have been observed for the first time, providing direct evidence for quantum gravity. How does this prove the Big Bang actually happened? Trace and explain this groundbreaking finding.
Early planets may have harbored microbial life just after the universe started, warmed by cosmic radiation, says a new theory.
