Scientists at the Max Planck Institute have discovered a millisecond pulsar accompanied by an unusual sub-stellar partner known as a "black widow."
The search for dark matter runs deep with physicists Blas Cabrera and Bernard Sadoulet, who have chased this mystery far underground and will be recognized for their work as joint recipients of the 2013 W.K.H. Panofsky Prize in Experimental Particle Physics.
Scientists have long believed that spacetime is foamy, like a freshly pulled draft beer, but new information from an intergalactic photo finish shows it might just be as smooth as a single malt whiskey, instead.
Gamma-ray photons seen emanating from the center of the Milky Way galaxy are consistent with the intriguing possibility that dark-matter particles are annihilating each other in space.
A special gamma-ray pulsar with the hiccups has been discovered by researchers from the Max Planck Institutes for Gravitational Physics and Radio Astronomy (MPIfR) using data constructed from the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope.
