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 →
The recent discovery of gravitational waves present in cosmic microwave background radiation -- posited as evidence of the big bang -- has been called into question by, of all things, dust that needs to be accounted for.
Scientists studying more than 140,000 extremely bright galaxies have calculated the expansion of the universe with unprecedented accuracy.
After hundreds of hours staring into the Whirlpool Galaxy, NASA's Chandra X-Ray Observatory has spotted the X-ray emissions of active black holes. Continue reading →
Astronomers have added an ultraviolet perspective to an ultra-deep field view of the universe taken by the Hubble Space Telescope over the past decade. Continue reading →
Rumors of interfering galactic dust messing with the potentially historic BICEP2 detection of gravitational waves have been shot down by project scientists. Continue reading →
After 3 months of number-crunching, 8,000 computer processors working in parallel have recreated the evolution of our Universe in unprecedented detail. Continue reading →
A new image from the Hubble Space Telescope reveals a galaxy cluster so huge that it acts like a magnifying glass, warping and amplifying light from galaxies much farther away.
