Belle II Yields First Results in Search of the Z' Boson

The Belle II experiment started about one year ago. The work deals with a new particle in the context of dark matter, which accounts for about 25 percent of the ...

The Milky Way's Satellites Help Reveal Link Between Dark Matter Halos and Galaxy Formation

Just like we orbit the sun and the moon orbits us, the Milky Way has satellite galaxies with their own satellites. Drawing from data on those galactic neighbors, a new model suggests the Milky Way ...

Looking for Dark Matter Close to Home

Eighty-five percent of the universe is composed of dark matter, but we don't know what, exactly, it ...

Astronomers Use Slime Mould to Map the Universe's Largest Structures

The behaviour of one of nature's humblest creatures and archival data from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope are helping astronomers probe the largest structures in the ...

Astronomers Use Slime Mold Model to Reveal Dark Threads of the Cosmic Web

A computational approach inspired by the growth patterns of a bright yellow slime mold has enabled a team of astronomers and computer scientists to trace the filaments of the cosmic web that connects ...

'Axion' Particle Solves Three Mysteries of the Universe

A hypothetical particle called the axion could solve one of physics' great mysteries: the excess of matter over antimatter, or why we're here at ...

Hubble Captures a Dozen Sunburst Arc Doppelgangers

Astronomers using the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope have observed a galaxy in the distant regions of the Universe which appears duplicated at least 12 times on the night sky. This unique sight, ...

Placing Another Piece in the Dark Matter Puzzle

A group of scientists is continuing the search for dark matter within the framework of the "Cosmic Axion Spin Precession Experiment" (or "CASPEr" for short). CASPEr is an ...

The Milky Way Kidnapped Several Tiny Galaxies from Its Neighbor

A team of astronomers has discovered that several of the small -- or 'dwarf' -- galaxies orbiting the Milky Way were likely stolen from the Large Magellanic Cloud, including several ...
