The dark side of cosmology
It's a beautiful theory: the standard model of cosmology describes the universe using just six parameters. But it is also strange. The model predicts that dark matter and dark energy – two mysterious entities ...
Interactive dark matter could explain Milky Way's missing satellite galaxies
Scientists believe they have found a way to explain why there are not as many galaxies orbiting the Milky Way as expected.
Cosmologists probe beyond the Big Bang
A long tradition of cosmology research in Cornell's College of Arts and Sciences has given birth to a vigorous effort by a new generation of cosmologists to understand the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB), the thermal radiation ...
Massive neutrinos and new standard cosmological model: No concordance yet
Neutrinos, also known as 'ghost particles' because they barely interact with other particles or their surroundings, are massless particles according to the standard model of particle physics. However, there ...
Artificial spacetime experiment could show tantalizing effects of gravitational waves
Physicist suggests speed of light might be slower than thought
'Cosmic own goal' another clue in hunt for dark matter
The hunt for dark matter has taken another step forward thanks to new supercomputer simulations showing the evolution of our "local Universe" from the Big Bang to the present day.
When science and philosophy collide in a 'fine-tuned' universe
When renowned scientists now talk seriously about millions of multiverses, the old question "are we alone?" gets a whole new meaning. ...
Astronomers challenge Cosmological Model
(Phys.org) —Astronomers Professor Chris Collins and Dr Ian McCarthy from LJMU's Astrophysics Research Institute are challenging the view that the currently preferred cosmological model of the Universe is ...
Star-quakes reveal content of stars which are hotter and more massive than the Sun
To determine the mass and size of planets found around other stars or to date stellar populations in order to limit the number of cosmological models, among other things, it is essential know what goes on ...
An analysis of Einstein's 1931 paper featuring a dynamic model of the universe
A paper published in the European Physical Journal H provides the first English translation and an analysis of one of Albert Einstein's little-known papers, "On the cosmological problem of the general theory ...
Einstein's conversion from a static to an expanding universe
Albert Einstein accepted the modern cosmological view that the universe is expanding long after his contemporaries, new study shows.
