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 ...

NASA explores inflatable spacecraft technology (Update)
Devising a way to one day land astronauts on Mars is a complex problem and NASA scientists think something as simple as a child's toy design may help solve the problem. Safely landing a large spacecraft on ...
Pair of noted physicists contemplate future of cosmology after detection of primordial gravitational waves
Should the Higgs boson have caused our Universe to collapse?
(Phys.org) —British cosmologists are puzzled: they predict that the Universe should not have lasted for more than a second. This startling conclusion is the result of combining the latest observations of ...
In the early universe, rapid expansion or something very weird
(PhysOrg.com) -- The widely-accepted theory of cosmic inflation states that our universe expanded rapidly in the moments after its birth, resulting in the immense expanse we see today.
Researchers detect B-mode polarization in cosmic microwave background
Cosmologists cast doubt on inflation evidence
It was just a week ago that the news blew through the scientific world like a storm: researchers from the BICEP2 project at the South Pole Telescope had detected unambiguous evidence of primordial gravitational waves in the cosmic microwave background, t ...

Across the multiverse: FSU physicist considers the big picture
(PhysOrg.com) -- Is there anybody out there? In Alejandro Jenkins' case, the question refers not to whether life exists elsewhere in the universe, but whether it exists in other universes outside of our own.
