Researcher shows that black holes do not exist
Black holes have long captured the public imagination and been the subject of popular culture, from Star Trek to Hollywood. They are the ultimate unknown – the blackest and most dense objects in the universe ...
Goodbye Big Bang, hello black hole? A new theory of the universe's creation
Could the famed "Big Bang" theory need a revision? A group of theoretical physicists suppose the birth of the universe could have happened after a four-dimensional star collapsed into a black hole and ejected ...
In theory, the Milky Way could be a 'galactic transport system'
Based on the latest evidence and theories our galaxy could be a huge wormhole (or space-time tunnel, have you seen "Interstellar?") and, if that were true, it would be "stable and navigable". This is the ...
International team strengthens Big Bang Theory
(Phys.org) —An international team of scientists using the most powerful telescope on Earth has discovered the moments just after the Big Bang happened more like the theory predicts, eliminating a significant ...
Gravity may have saved the universe after the Big Bang, say researchers
(Phys.org) —New research by a team of European physicists could explain why the universe did not collapse immediately after the Big Bang.
Could the Big Bang have been a quick conversion of antimatter into matter?
Japan astronomers find most distant galaxy cluster
Japanese astronomers said Wednesday they had found a cluster of galaxies 12.72 billion light-years away from Earth, which they claim is the most distant cluster ever discovered.
Did the universe originate from a hyper-dimensional black hole?
Lately there's been news of a radical new theory proposing that the universe began from a hyper-dimensional black hole. Most of the reports seem to stem from an article posted a while back on the Nature blog, ...

New evidence for anthropic theory that fundamental physics constants underlie life-enabling universe
For nearly half a century, theoretical physicists have made a series of discoveries that certain constants in fundamental physics seem extraordinarily fine-tuned to allow for the emergence of a life-enabling ...
