Essential Science: Map of universe's dark matter produced

Scientists have created the most detailed map ever of the dark matter in our universe. The map takes in some 26 million galaxies, in the biggest study of dark matter ever undertaken. The map was produced from the latest astronomical digital technology.

Dark Energy Detectives' cosmic map sheds light on dark matter

Baltimore - An international team of scientists participating in the Dark Energy Survey have published the first of a series of dark matter maps of the cosmos.

We may have overestimated the expansion rate of the universe

New observations of supernovae have suggested that the universe may be expanding much slowly than has been thought up until now. This is a large change that could influence future theories about the end of the universe.

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.

Dark energy quest aided by new 'candle' measuring cosmic distance

Dark energy can be better pinned down the better we understand the speed of the cosmic acceleration it causes. Identifying a new Type Ia supernovae "candle" among young stars emitting ultra violet pins down that speed better.

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.

Dark energy eliminates dark matter and the shape of the cosmos

Dark energy, thought to be responsible for the accelerating expansion of the universe, is said to interact with dark matter destabilizing cosmic structure, evaporating dark matter and loosening the glue holding the universe's familiar shapes in place.

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.

Has dark matter finally been detected? AMS scientists drop a hint

Researchers have hinted "big news" for the world in the search for dark matter. The physicist in charge of the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS) experiment dropped a hint at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

NASA joins ESA's Euclid mission to explore Universe's dark forces

NASA and the European Space Agency this week announced that NASA would be participating in the ESA’s Euclid mission scheduled for launch in 2020. Euclid is a space telescope whose purpose is to investigate cosmic dark matter and dark energy.

Supernovas Are Getting Dimmer

Scientists use the light of exploding stars to explore the galaxies. That light seems to be getting about 12 per cent dimmer. What's happening to the Super Novas? Will scientists still be able to explore the universe in the same way?
