Nearly a century after it was theorized, Harvard scientists have succeeded in creating metallic hydrogen. In addition to helping scientists answer fundamenta...
Vera Rubin, Astrophysicist Who Confirmed Existence Of Dark Matter, Dies At 88
The astrophysicist's groundbreaking research on spiral galaxies provided evidence of invisible dark matter. She was a pioneer in an era when women were excluded from many astronomy programs.
2016 Nobel Prize In Physics Awarded To David Thouless, Duncan Haldane And Michael Kosterlitz
They were honored for their work in revealing the secrets of exotic matter. Their discoveries, using advanced mathematics, had boosted research in condensed matter physics and raised hopes for uses in...
Dark matter may just be a bunch of ancient black holes
An invisible "dark matter" outweighs all the stars in space by 4:1. But gravitational waves may soon unmask the shadowy culprit.
The Higgs-shaped elephant in the room
Higgs bosons should mass-produce bottom quarks. So why is it so hard to see it happening?
EARTH's First 'Wormhole' is Created, Far-Future of Space Travel
Far-Future of Space Travel? The Planet's First Experimental 'Wormhole' is Created.
Could black holes be the dark matter everyone has been looking for?
As we wait for more LIGO results, a maverick theory pops up
Elusive Dark Matter Galaxy Revealed By Cosmic Lens
An invisible dark-matter galaxy hides in the edges of another larger galaxy serving as a natural magnifying glass. Astronomers probing the sky used the gravity of a massive galaxy as a natural magnif...
How Axions May Explain Time’s Arrow
The irreversibility of time may be a clue as to what makes up the universe’s dark matter.
Did 'Dark Matter' Or A Star Called Nemesis Kill The Dinosaurs?
The dinosaur extinction 66m years ago was most likely caused by a comet or big asteroid hitting the Earth. But given that asteroids don't actually hit our planet very often, could this really be the w...
New 'Stealth Dark Matter' Theory May Explain Mystery Of The Universe's Missing Mass
Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) scientists have come up with a new theory that may identify why dark matter has evaded direct detection in Earth-based experiments. A group of national pa...
After A Half Century, The Exotic Pentaquark Particle Is Found
In July, scientists at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) reported the discovery of the pentaquark, a long-sought particle first predicted to exist in the 1960s as a consequence of the theory of elementa...
Magnetic Wormhole Created In Lab
Ripped from the pages of a sci-fi novel, physicists have crafted a wormhole that tunnels a magnetic field through space. "This device can transmit the magnetic field from one point in space to another...
Large Hadron Collider Discovers New Pentaquark Particle
Scientists at the Large Hadron Collider have announced the discovery of a new particle called the pentaquark. It was first predicted to exist in the 1960s but, much like the Higgs boson particle befor...
Hypothetical particles
This is a list of the different types of particles found or believed to exist in the whole of the universe. For individual lists of the different particles, see the list below.

Hypothetical astronomical object
A hypothetical Solar System object is a planet, natural satellite or similar body in our Solar System whose existence is not known, but has been inferred from observational scientific evidence. Over t...
Exotic matter
In physics, exotic matter is matter that somehow deviates from normal matter and has "exotic" properties. Exotic mass has been considered a colloquial term for matters such as Dark matter, negative ma...
Mirror matter
In physics, mirror matter, also called shadow matter or Alice matter, is a hypothetical counterpart to ordinary matter.Modern physics deals with three basic types of spatial symmetry: reflection, rota...
Wormhole
A wormhole is a hypothetical topological feature that would fundamentally be a shortcut through spacetime. A wormhole is much like a tunnel with two ends, each in separate points in spacetime.For a si...

NGC 7522
NGC 7522 is an astronomical object whose identity is in question. It was originally catalogued as a faint nebula. Although SIMBAD identifies it as PGC 70742, this is unlikely, due to the faintness of ...
