Observations of early universe hint at a giant excess of anti-neutrinos
Early universe may have been dominated by bobbing waves
Primordial beryllium could reveal insights into the Big Bang
Could dark baryons explain dark matter?
New Data Suggests We Don’t Live in a Void, and Supports Dark Energy
Granny galaxies discovered in the early universe
(Phys.org) —An international team of astronomers have discovered the most distant examples of galaxies that were already mature and massive – not just young, star-forming galaxies in the nursery-room ...
Ultracold Big Bang experiment successfully simulates evolution of early universe
(Phys.org) —Physicists have reproduced a pattern resembling the cosmic microwave background radiation in a laboratory simulation of the Big Bang, using ultracold cesium atoms in a vacuum chamber at the ...
Removing complexity layers from the universe's creation
Complicated statistical behaviour observed in complex systems such as early universe can often be understood if it is broken down into simpler ones. Two physicists, Petr Jizba (currently affiliated with the Czech Technical ...
Researchers detect B-mode polarization in cosmic microwave background
Galaxies fed by funnels of fuel
(Phys.org) —Computer simulations of galaxies growing over billions of years have revealed a likely scenario for how they feed: a cosmic version of swirly straws.
Fragile mega-galaxy is missing link in history of cosmos
Two hungry young galaxies that collided 11 billion years ago are rapidly forming a massive galaxy about 10 times the size of the Milky Way, according to UC Irvine-led research published Wednesday in the journal ...
Entire galaxies feel the heat from newborn stars: Bursts of star birth can curtail future galaxy growth
(Phys.org) —Astronomers using the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope have shown for the first time that bursts of star formation have a major impact far beyond the boundaries of their host galaxy. These energetic ...
Massive galaxy had intense burst of star formation when universe was only 6 percent of current age
(Phys.org) —Smaller begets bigger. Such is often the case for galaxies, at least: the first galaxies were small, then eventually merged together to form the behemoths we see in the present universe.
Hubble telescope breaks record for farthest supernova
(Phys.org) —The supernova, designated SN UDS10Wil, belongs to a special class of exploding stars known as Type Ia supernovae. These bright beacons are prized by astronomers because they can be used as a ...
