Galaxies formed one billion years earlier than previously thought

The detection of a distant galaxy, far more massive than the Milky Way reveals that the 'cores' of massive galaxies had already formed 1.5 billion years after the Big Bang, this is some 1 billion years earlier than calculations suggested.

Not all of our suntan comes from the Sun

While the Sun accounts for most of a suntan, new research suggests a very tiny amount of ultraviolet light comes from the Big Bang, as well as other stars and galaxies.

Thousands of tiny robots will look 11 billion years back in time

An army of 5,000 tiny robots has been given a giant mission. Under the command of scientists at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBL), the robot soldiers will peer 11 billion years back in time (just 400,000 years after the Big Bang).

Water was abundant in universe’s early years

Tel Aviv - Researchers attached to the Harvard Astronomy Program at Tel Aviv University in Israel discovered that water was plentiful in the early universe, finding evidence that water vapor formed much earlier than previously believed.

Large Hadron Collider begins restart process

The restart of the Large Hadron Collider has begun as particles begin to travel around the 27km tunnel again for the first time since 2013. The LHC has been shut down so that substantial upgrade and maintenance work can be completed.

Why is the Universe full of ‘stuff’ and not nothingness?

Los Angeles - Physicists at UCLA have a new slant on the origin of matter in the universe. That stars and planets are made of stuff we call matter is self-evident, but where did that stuff come from?

Big Bang, dark matter and black holes killed by math

Straight lines in the universe eradicate a big-bang beginning to the universe. Without a Big Bang beginning, there are no black holes. Without black holes, there is no dark matter and no dark energy. There is, instead, an infinite stable, universe.

The Big Bang never happened? Why the universe has no beginning

A new study suggests that the Big Bang wasn't the start of the universe. It postulates that, in fact, it has no beginning and no end.

Op-Ed: The Big Bang in nano frequencies – New tech, new accessibility

Copenhagen - The Big Bang is getting a makeover from new technology. Researchers at the University of Copenhagen use nano tech to detect radio waves and filter out extraneous signals. It's called an "optical transducer."

ESA's Planck Space Telescope takes final look back in time

Darmstadt - The European Space Agency (ESA) switched off its Planck space telescope for good at 12:10:27 UT, Thursday. Planck spent over four years peering back in time, studying background radiation from the Big Bang that gave birth to our Universe.

Stephen Hawking: The universe did not need God to create it

The famous theoretical astrophysicist Stephen Hawking, addressing a large audience at the California Institute of Technology on April 16, said that the Universe did not need a divine creator to bring it into being.

Listen to the sound of the Big Bang (2013 HD wave)

Sydney - Sound doesn’t travel in space? It does, in some forms, and it did during the early days of the universe. The sound of the Big Bang as a waveform is an interesting, if somewhat baffling, exercise in listening.

Physicists: Earth may be breaking through dark matter walls

University of Victoria physicists concluded earth may be traveling through dark matter walls, on its way through a universe of force fields dividing dark matter bubbles created after the big bang, and detecting this should be possible with today's tools.

The anatomy of flooding in Olongapo City, Philippines Special

Using early 80s as reference, people of Olongapo City,(Zambales,Central Luzon, Philippines) can not pin point a recorded instance of worst flood. Torrential rains have never been threats to this silent and united community.

Canadian scientists are the first to measure the antimatter atom

Burnaby - A team of Canadian physicists have measured an antimatter atom for the first time. The research could prove to be important in understanding the Big Bang and the creation of the universe.

Op-Ed: Gigantic black holes raise bigger questions

Astronomy is now ablaze with the news of a monster black hole, ten times the size of the solar system, with the mass of 21 billion suns. The questions this monster raises are bigger than it is, and science needs some answers.

Op-Ed: Comet Elenin, Nibiru - On science of fear and fearlessness

Should we fear Comet Elenin, Nibiru and other celestial phenomena and speculation? Is there a scientific basis for fear and fearlessness? Richard Hoagland claims the comet represents another plot like 9/11 to create mass fear (video).

LHC matter dethrones neutron star as super-dense king

Scientists announced this week that they have found the densest form of matter in the known universe. This exotic material may be the parent of all known matter.

CERN's Large Hadron Collider recreates 'mini Big Bang'

The Large Hadron Collider has created its very own mini Big Bang after smashing together lead ions instead of protons. These unique conditions were achieved yesterday by scientists working at the world's largest atom smasher on the French-Swiss border.

Soccer ace Cantona rumoured to play Doctor Who villain

Anticipation has reached fever pitch in the UK as viewers prepare for the final episode of the current series of Doctor Who. [Do not read further if you do not want to be spoiled!]

Has the human brain reached its limit of understanding?

Britain’s Astronomer Royal, Lord Rees, has said the human brain may have reached its capacity for understanding, and there are some major problems we may never be able to resolve.

Einstein's 46-page masterpiece on relativity goes on display

Einstein's famous 46 pages on the theory of relativity goes on display today in Israel. The famed document demonstrates many complexities about the universe.

Big Bang scientist allegedly plotted to blow up oil refinery

The arrest last week in France of a nuclear scientist with links to al-Qaeda has allegedly uncovered a plot to blow up a refinery that would have leveled a city the size of London, England.

Op-Ed: The Big Bang Sequel Billions of Years Later

Indian girl commits suicide over fears of 'Big Bang' experiment

A 16-year-old girl from India committed suicide out of fear of a recent “Big Bang” experiment. The girl feared the experiment would bring about the end of the world, and she wouldn't listen to her father who tried to allay her fears.

Some Scientists Fear The End Of The World Could Begin In Nine Days

In nine days the Large Hadron Collider will be switched on. Some scientists fear that will be the end of the world. They believe that the world's biggest experiment will create a black hole and swallow the Earth.

Op-Ed: Big Bang to End in Big Rip?

The theory is that dark matter will engulf the universe. Or maybe not. Maybe there’ll be a Big Crunch, or a Big Freeze. Or not. Maybe proton decay will set in when all matter is locked up in black holes and dead stars. They’re a happy lot, physicists.

From Big Bang to Big Bounce- are we living in a recycled universe?

Quantum physics has been added to Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity to produce a model of the creation of the universe. The new theory is called Loop Quantum Gravity. It's about as simple as it sounds.
