New research explains what may be the cause of the universe's accelerating ...

Study Rules out Dark Matter Destruction as Origin of Extra Radiation in Galaxy Center

Through an analysis of the Fermi data and an exhaustive series of modeling exercises, researchers were able to determine that an observed excess of gamma rays could not have been produced by what are ...

Spectacular Ultraviolet Flash May Finally Explain How White Dwarfs Explode

For just the second time ever, astrophysicists have spotted a spectacular flash of ultraviolet (UV) light accompanying a white dwarf explosion. An extremely rare type of supernova, the event is ...

Scientists Propose Plan to Determine If Planet Nine Is a Primordial Black Hole

Scientists have developed a new method to find black holes in the outer solar system, and along with it, determine once-and-for-all the true nature of the hypothesized Planet ...

Case for Axion Origin of Dark Matter Gains Traction

In a new study of axion motion, researchers propose a scenario known as ''kinetic misalignment'' that greatly strengthens the case for axion/dark matter equivalence. The novel ...

A cosmic measurement technique independent of all others adds strong evidence pointing to a problem with the current theoretical model describing the composition and evolution of the ...

New Test of Dark Energy and Expansion from Cosmic Structures

A new paper has shown how large structures in the distribution of galaxies in the Universe provide the most precise tests of dark energy and cosmic expansion ...

Cosmic Bursts Unveil Universe's Missing Matter

Astronomers have used mysterious fast radio bursts to solve a decades-old mystery of 'missing matter', long predicted to exist in the Universe but never detected -- until now. The ...

Exoplanet Climate 'Decoder' Aids Search for Life

After examining a dozen types of suns and a roster of planet surfaces, astronomers have developed a practical model - an environmental color ''decoder'' - to tease out climate ...

No Evidence of an Influence of Dark Matter on the Force Between Nuclei

Although most of the universe is made up of dark matter, very little is known about it. Physicists have used a high-precision experiment to look for interaction between dark matter and normal ...

Seeing the Universe Through New Lenses

A new study revealed hundreds of new strong gravitational lensing candidates based on a deep dive into data. The study benefited from the winning machine-learning algorithm in an international ...

Hayabusa2 Reveals More Secrets from Ryugu

In February and July of 2019, the Hayabusa2 spacecraft briefly touched down on the surface of near-Earth asteroid Ryugu. The readings it took with various instruments at those times have given ...
