Latest Observable universe Stories
A dwarf galaxy recently discovered orbiting the Milky Way appears to be radiating gamma rays, and leading researchers from Brown and Carnegie Mellon universities hypothesize that it could be filled with particles of the mysterious substance known as dark matter.
Using a new mapping technique that takes into account the motions of nearby galaxies, researchers have discovered that the Milky Way resides on the outer edge of a massive, previously undetected supercluster of galaxies that they have dubbed Laniakea.
New research from UCL shows we will soon uncover the origin of the ultraviolet light that bathes the cosmos, helping scientists understand how galaxies were built.
Nearly 100 years since Albert Einstein developed general relativity, the theory has passed its toughest test yet in explaining the properties of observable Universe.
An image of a galaxy cluster taken by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope gives a remarkable cross-section of the Universe, showing objects at different distances and stages in cosmic history.
WASHINGTON, April 10, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope, astronomers now can precisely measure the distance of stars up to 10,000 light-years away -- 10 times
The ALHAMBRA project has identified and classified more than half a million galaxies, after seven years of close observation of the universe
In order to illuminate the darkness we turn to the light. Whether the sun, a lamp, or a candle, we rely on electromagnetic radiation to reveal the world, and indeed the Universe, around us.
Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics theorist Avi Loeb says that modern time is not the ideal scenario to study the universe, but rather about 13 billion years ago was.
One trillion years from now, an alien astronomer in our galaxy will have a difficult time figuring out how the universe began.
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.
