Latest Dark energy Stories
The historical, theoretical and experimental evidence on the lack of expansion of the universe was confirmed at five scientific meetings in Europe and in the Far East (
Measuring the invisible and intangible is a challenge for sure, but scientists have made inroads on one front: the study of dark matter and dark energy, two of the most mysterious substances in our cosmos.
In a new study, Dartmouth researchers rule out a controversial theory that the accelerating expansion of the universe is an illusion.
After four years surveying the Universe for the European Space Agency, the Planck space telescope’s Low Frequency Instrument will be turned off on Saturday.
A new theory suggests perhaps dark energy may be created by interactions of exotic particles like the Higgs Boson.
An international team led by astronomers from Kyoto University, the University of Tokyo and the University of Oxford has released its first version of a 3D map of the Universe from its FastSound project
The best way to solve a mystery, as any detective can tell you, is to revisit the scene where it began and look for clues. Scientists, searching for the mysteries of our universe, are trying to go back as far as they can to the Big Bang.
Today, researchers at the Kavli Institute for the Physics and Mathematics of the Universe (Kavli IPMU) released the first image of the Andromeda Galaxy (M31) processed with the data analysis software developed for the Subaru Telescope's Hyper Suprime-Cam (HSC).
In the hunt for dark matter and dark energy, researchers now have a new weapon in their arsenal: the Hyper-Suprime Cam (HSC).

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.

Quintessence (Dark Energy) -- Quintessence or dark energy is a hypothetical form of energy postulated to exist in order to explain observations of an accelerating universe. This energy would act like a vacuum pressure, pushing things apart. Other attempts to explain these recent observations involve a non-zero cosmological constant, which has the same effect. Indeed, sometimes quintessence is said to result in a non-zero cosmological constant, and conversely a non-zero cosmological...
Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP) -- The Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP) was launched on June 30, 2001 at 3:46 p.m. EDT at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida, USA. The goal of WMAP was to map out minute differences in the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) radiation which would help test theories of the nature of the universe. On February 11, 2003, the public relations group from NASA made a press release regarding the age and composition of the universe....
