Dark matter, the substance that is thought to make up more than a quarter of the universe, remains a greater mystery. Scientists have now stated that earlier findings, seemingly discovering dark matter particles, are not correct.

The Universe: Reality vs. perception

What is the Universe? Centuries of human thought have "taught" us what it is. We've created our own concept of what the Universe is, but could we be wrong?

On Wednesday, 4 July 2012, in Geneva, Switzerland, scientists working at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) announced that they have found the elusive Higgs boson particles, sometimes referred to as the God particle.

Is our universe inside a black hole? An inside look at new theory

Indianapolis - Are universes inside giant black holes? Is our entire universe located inside a wormhole? This is not science-fiction, but it could answer various cosmic mysteries that plague scientists across the globe (or universe?).

As the universe ages, expands, future cosmologists will know less

Cambridge - As the universe persists in its expansion, cosmologists in the future will continue to understand less. In fact, according to one theory, the best time to learn about the cosmos was more than 13 billion years ago.

In Photos: 22 years of spectacular Hubble Space Telescope images

Washington - On April 24, 1990, 8:33:51 am EST, the historic Hubble Space Telescope was launched into orbit by Space Shuttle Discovery. The 2.4 metre (7.9 feet) telescope is now 22 years old and what better way to celebrate then to look back at its stunning images.

Dwarf galaxies help unlock big secrets in dark matter

Pasadena - New research in dwarf galaxies, satellites of our own, is now helping scientists better understand dark matter. Peering into the darkest depths of these neighboring systems have shown nothing, and that nothingness is what everyone is excited about.

Ancient 13 billion year-old planetary system discovered

Heidelberg - German astronomers have discovered a planetary system deemed a survivor of the very early universe. The ancient system is an astonishing 13 billion years old, and raises the question of how such early stars and planets might have formed.

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: Top space stories of 2011 – Many more to come in 2012

Toronto - Every day, physicists, astronomers and scientists discover something new about the universe we live – and beyond. What were some of the top out-of-this-world space stories of the year?

Discovered – black holes large enough to swallow a galaxy

Astronomers have unexpectedly discovered two of the largest black holes ever seen in the universe. The black holes are millions of times larger and denser than any previously recorded: large enough to swallow out solar system many times over.

Op-Ed: 'Complex organic matter' throughout the universe

Hong Kong - This is a major issue in the making. Forget all previous theories, stars have now been shown to be able to create organic materials. Complex organic materials are literally everywhere.

Scientists: Bolshoi universe simulation most accurate to date

The Bolshoi cosmological simulations team has released advanced calculations and thrilling images from this grand-scale 3-D model and movie of the universe of matter and energy, the most detailed and accurate so far, the researchers have claimed.

Physicists to conduct first observational test of the multiverse

London - Theoretical physicists in Great Britain are now conducting tests for the very first time to find evidence of multiple alternative universes, otherwise known as a multiverse. A team of cosmologists will search the cosmic microwave background radiation.

Scientists discover the universe's oldest, largest mass of water

Pasadena - Astronomers at the University of Maryland have discovered the largest and oldest mass of water in the universe. It's a 12-billion-year-old cloud located near a supermassive black hole and contains 140 trillion times more water than Earth's oceans.

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.

Universe bigger than original estimates; 'trillions of earths'

New Haven - A new study shows that the universe is larger than what we originally estimated. By analyzing elliptical galaxies, scientists found hundreds of millions of cool, small stars known as red dwarfs. This could possibly mean “trillions of Earths."

Universe getting more crowded: Ten 'shadow' galaxies discovered

The universe is getting more crowded by the day. New telescopes and technologies are allowing astronomers to discover new astronomical objects all the time, such as ten new galaxy clusters found recently by the Atacama Cosmology Telescope (ACT).

Internal view of the Stanford torus space station design. Artist's description: "The 1975 NASA Ames/Stanford University Summer Study worked out the broad engineering requirements for a toroidal shaped space colony design. This painting used the design, but I refused to fill the interior with the 'shopping mall gone mad' clutter of other drawings. Again the challenge of sustaining something like a closed ecosystem was a theme I wanted to emphasize. This design became known as the 'Stanford Torus'
