ESA's Planck Space Mission Creates Highly-Detailed Map Of The Universe
2013-03-21 12:44:54

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Using technologies contributed by NASA, the European Space Agency's (ESA) Planck space mission has provided the most accurate and detailed map made of the oldest light in the Universe. Results from Planck are giving a more detailed look into our Universe's history than ever before. The map suggests that the Universe is expanding more slowly and is 100 million years older than scientists previously thought. The data also shows...

Keating, PhD, describes and depicts first moments after Big Bang gleaned from South Pole microwave telescopes. San Diego, CA (PRWEB) March 07, 2013 Angel Flight West (AFW)–a volunteer-pilot, nonprofit organization that arranges free, non-emergency air travel for children and adults with serious...

Taking Temperature Of Universe In Past Reveals Cooling Trend
2013-01-23 12:51:18

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Astronomers using the CSIRO radio telescope have discovered that the Universe's temperature has cooled down, which falls right in line with the Big Bang theory. An international team of astronomers from Sweden, France, Germany and Australia used the CSIRO Australia Telescope Compact Array near Narrabi to measure how warm the Universe was when it was half its current age. "This is the most precise measurement ever made of how...

In his new book, Engineering Physicist Daniel Friedmann shares his unique formula for converting ℠Bible Time´ to Gregorian years. Poised to provide compelling answers to the timeline aspects of the on-going Creation vs. Evolution debate, could the author´s new book be the answer both sides are fighting for? New York, New York (PRWEB) January 21, 2013 A new book by North American Physics Engineer, Daniel Friedmann, could be about to settle long-held differences between...

New Book is a Trove of Incisive Insights on the Evolution of the Universe QUEBEC (PRWEB) January 15, 2013 The Big Bang theory is the prevailing paradigm in cosmology. In his new book, “Bright Hole Cosmos: and Multibang Dynamics”, author Andre Trepanier explores this cosmological model as he leads the way to a fascinating journey in the understanding of the evolution of the universe. Trepanier´s goal for writing his groundbreaking treatise is to challenge some of the main...

A cerebral volume that basically presents the analyses of the human scientific knowledge and its significance and contribution to a better understanding of the creation of the universe and life on earth Brazil (PRWEB) January 12, 2013 The universe and life on earth are like a labyrinth that needed to be solved. They pose many questions that relentlessly seeking for answers. How the universe was created? How will it end? Did God made it? What is the truth about extra-terrestrial life,...

Magnetic Fields Created Before Stars In The Early Universe
2013-01-02 13:13:56

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online An astronomer wrote in the journal Physical Review Letters about a new mechanism for the magnetization of the early universe. Before stars formed, luminous matter consisted only of fully ionized gas of protons, electrons, helium nuclei and lithium nuclei which were produced during the Big Bang. “All higher metals, for example, magnetic iron could, according to today´s conception, only be formed in the inside of...

Astronomers Discover 7 Primitive Galaxies
2012-12-13 08:30:25

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Astronomers have discovered seven primitive galaxies that formed more than 13 billion years ago, during the Universe's infancy. The find includes a candidate galaxy that could hold the record for the most distant galaxy ever found. Scientists made the new discoveries using the Hubble Space Telescope's Hubble Ultra Deep Field project, which aims to improve our understanding of the early Universe. Astronomers are looking back at...

Image Caption: The Hubble Extreme Deep Field (XDF) was completed in September 2012 and shows the farthest galaxies ever photographed by humans. Each speck of light in the photo is an individual galaxy, some of them as old as 13.2 billion years; the observable universe is estimated to contain more than 200 billion galaxies. Credit: NASA/Wikipedia What is Cosmology? I once commented to an acquaintance that I was fascinated by the field of Cosmology, and mused that if I had more time, I...

Large-Scale Structure of the Cosmos -- Stars are organised into galaxies which in turn appear to form clusters and superclusters, separated by voids. Prior to 1989 it was commonly assumed that the superclusters were the largest structures in existence, and that they were distributed more-or-less uniformly throughout the universe in every direction. However, in 1989, Margaret Geller and John Huchra discovered the "Great Wall", a sheet of galaxies more than 500 million light years long...

Cosmology -- area of science that aims at a comprehensive theory of the structure and evolution of the entire physical universe. Modern Cosmological Theories Present models of the universe hold two fundamental premises: the cosmological principle and the dominant role of gravitation. Derived by Hubble, the cosmological principle holds that if a large enough sample of galaxies is considered, the universe looks the same from all positions and in all directions in space. The second point...

Redshift -- Redshift is the phenomenon that the frequency of light when observed, under certain circumstances, can be lower than the frequency of light when it was emitted at the source. This usually occurs when the source moves away from the observer, as in the Doppler effect. More specifically, the term redshift is used for the observation that the spectrum of light emitted by distant galaxies is shifted to lower frequencies (towards the red end of the spectrum, hence the name) when...

Quasar -- A quasar (from quasi-stellar radio source) is an astronomical object that looks like a star in optical telescopes (i.e. it is a point source), but has a very high redshift. The general consensus is that this high redshift is cosmological, the result of Hubble's law and that their redshift indicates that they are typically very distant from Earth; we observe them as they were several billions of years ago. Since we can see them despite their distance, they must emit more...
