Cold cosmic mystery solved: Largest known structure in the universe leaves its imprint on CMB radiation
In 2004, astronomers examining a map of the radiation leftover from the Big Bang (the cosmic microwave background, or CMB) discovered the Cold Spot, a larger-than-expected unusually cold area of the sky. ...
Pair of noted physicists contemplate future of cosmology after detection of primordial gravitational waves
Could a new proposed particle help to detect dark matter?
Researchers at the University of Southampton have proposed a new fundamental particle which could explain why no one has managed to detect 'Dark Matter', the elusive missing 85 per cent of the Universe's ...
Baryon Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey measures the universe to one-percent accuracy
Today the Baryon Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey (BOSS) Collaboration announced that BOSS has measured the scale of the universe to an accuracy of one percent. This and future measures at this precision ...
