We hear a lot about dark matter, and how physicists are ever on the hunt for it. But how do you look for something you can't even see?
In new observations, an extremely concentrated knot of ancient galaxies undergoing energetic star formation at the dawn of our universe has been spied embedded in a knot of dark matter.
Are the planets of the solar system sprouting invisible dark matter 'hairs'? If so, does this indicate an interplanetary trend of dark matter 'beards'?
While measuring the speed of stars whirling around a nearby dwarf galaxy, astronomers have realized that a reservoir of dark matter may be lurking within.
Shimmering deep inside a cosmic supervoid is MCG+01-02-015, a pristine galaxy that is the undisputed galactic loner of the universe.
Scientists are taking initial steps in a long-term effort to learn as much as they can about gravitational waves -- mysterious undulations in the fabric of space-time that have so far evaded clear detection.
Our universe is actually really simple, it's just our cosmological theories that are getting needlessly complex, argues one of the world's leading theoretical physicists.
The great cosmologist Bruce Springsteen once sang "everything dies, baby, that's a fact," but does that assertion include the little universe we call home? Julian takes us through the current theories on what will happen to our space and time.
