Astronomers created the first and largest three-dimensional large-scale map of the universe. They used quasars and their brightness as reference points.
Is there multiple universes out there we just can't see? Scientists say this cold spot might be proof to it.
The presence of supermassive black holes at the center of dwarf galaxies is more common than previously thought.
New findings from a CERN study may be able to fill one of the biggest gaps in the Standard Model of physics -- how the universe broke the rules of symmetry and why we exist.
Previously unknown, nearly empty region in the universe is responsible for the expansion of the universe, pushing away Milky Way and other Local galaxies through space.
Carl Sagan put it best, "We are all made of starstuff." Check out the periodic table that explains he's right.
Reminiscent of the merciless Death Star, a phenomenon called ram-pressure stripping kills thousands of galaxies throughout space.
Astronomers can now explore and investigate black holes during the earlier days of the universe thanks to the astounding image taken by the Chandra X-ray Observatory.
Scientists just released in public the largest digital survey of the universe, which they put together for four years. The survey was conducted by the scientists at the University of Hawaii Institute for Astronomy, under the Pan-STARRS (Panoramic Survey Telescope and Rapid Response System) project.
The new gravity theory, which was first proposed in 2010 by physicist Erik Verlinde from University of Amsterdam suggests that we do not need the dark matter to explain the anomalies in the universe.
Scientists have been trying to figure out the age of the universe and have come to the conclusion that the Earth is aging. On top of that, it has been recorded from observations of different galaxies that the universe may be starting to die.
It is hypothesized that dark matter's invisible nature can be explained by dark photons that wouldn't interact with the regular matter.
Astronomers discover a large population of distant dwarf galaxies that belong to an important cosmic period when the universe was between two to six billion years old.
