Latest Baryon acoustic oscillations Stories
Two recent studies of the early Universe using the Baryon Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey (BOSS), a component of the third Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS-III), have made the most accurate measurement of the rate of expansion in the early Universe to date.
Physicists have reproduced a pattern resembling the cosmic microwave background radiation in a laboratory simulation of the Big Bang, using ultracold cesium atoms in a vacuum chamber at the University of Chicago.
A $2.1 million grant from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation to the University of California at Berkeley, through the Berkeley Center for Cosmological Physics (BCCP), will fund the development of revolutionary technologies for BigBOSS, a project now in the proposal stage designed to study dark energy with unprecedented precision.
The Baryon Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey (BOSS) has announced the first major result of a new mapping technique, unveiling over 48,000 quasars.
The largest-ever 3-D map of massive galaxies and distant black holes was released this week in the hopes that it will help explain the mysteries of "dark matter" and "dark energy."
The Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS-III) announced the most accurate measurements yet of the distances to galaxies in the faraway universe, giving an unprecedented look at the time when the universe first began to expand at an ever-increasing rate.
Berkeley Lab scientists and their Sloan Digital Sky Survey colleagues use galactic brightness to build a precision model of the cosmos.
Ohio State University researchers are leveraging powerful supercomputers to investigate one of the key observational probes of "dark energy," the mysterious energy form that is causing the expansion of the universe to accelerate over time.
The biggest 3-D map of the distant universe ever made, using light from 14,000 quasars â€“ supermassive black holes at the centers of galaxies billions of light years away â€“ has been constructed by scientists with the third Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS-III).
Several ways have been proposed to examine dark energy, in hopes of finding out just what it is. One of them, â€œsupernovaeâ€ for short, certainly works: itâ€™s how dark energy was discovered in the first place.
- The act of burning, scorching, or heating to dryness; the state or being thus heated or dried.
- In medicine, cauterization.
