Astronomers said at a Royal Astronomical Society Meeting in St Andrews, Scotland on Monday that they have found a new way to map out quasars.
The Baryon Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey (BOSS) has announced the first major result of a new mapping technique, unveiling over 48,000 quasars.
Researchers are finding ways to map out the spread and structure of the universe through the light of quasars.
New research by astronomers in the Physics Department at Durham University suggests that the conventional wisdom about the content of the Universe may be wrong.

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.

Big Bang -- The Big Bang theory is the dominant theory in cosmology about the early development and current shape of the universe. According to this theory, the universe expanded rapidly starting 13.7 0.2 billion years ago. Extrapolating the history of the universe backwards using current physical models leads to a gravitational singularity, at which all distances become zero and temperatures and pressures become infinite. What this means is unclear and most physicists believe that this...
