Researchers identify one of the earliest stars in the universe

The discovery suggests that the very first generation of stars may not have been as powerful as previously thought. As the Big Bang’s name suggests,...

From One Collapsing Star, Two Black Holes Form and Fuse

Black holes—massive objects in space with gravitational forces so strong that not even light can escape them—come in a variety of sizes. On the...

Astronomers Discover Universe’s Most Distant Galaxy

Ultracold Big Bang experiment successfully simulates evolution of early universe

Physicists have reproduced a pattern resembling the cosmic microwave background radiation in a laboratory simulation of the Big Bang, using ultracold cesium atoms in...

Explosion illuminates invisible galaxy in the dark ages

More than 12 billion years ago a star exploded, ripping itself apart and blasting its remains outward in twin jets at nearly the speed...

On the hunt for neutrinos

Every second, trillions of particles called neutrinos pass through your body. These particles have a mass so tiny it has never been measured, and...

Star-forming galaxy is the most distant ever found

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...

Olbers paradox is explained by cosmic dust instead of the Big...

The Doppler redshift in light from distant galaxies in a finite and expanding Universe long thought to explain Olbers paradox of why the night sky is dark and not bright is negated by cosmic dust in an infinite and non-expanding Universe
