As galaxies mature, they stop forming stars -- but why? Now astronomers are hot on the trail of finding the culprit. Continue reading â†’
An app called the Distributed Electronic Cosmic-Ray Observatory allows smartphone owners to detect high-energy particles.
If you thought the search for the Higgs boson â€” the elusive particle that endows matter with mass â€” was epic, spare a thought for the physicists who have been trying to find a way to discover another subatomic particle â€¦ Continue reading â†’
Mass and gravity are intimately related, so it stands to reason that the link between the Higgs boson and gravity is just as fundamental -- now astronomers are looking to the stars to actually test the finer details of this relationship. Continue reading â†’
Gravitational waves are hard to observe, but they could have a dramatic effect on stars that we could possibly detect. Continue reading â†’
The likelihood that a South Pole-based telescope detected elusive gravitational waves earlier this year has just taken another nosedive. Continue reading â†’
An extraordinary amount of ultraviolet light appears to be missing from the universe, scientists have found.
Through the analysis of light from distant galactic clusters, astronomers have detected a mysterious signal that they're having a hard time explaining. Continue reading â†’
