"The Black Hole Paradox" --New Theory Says Soon After Big Bang, Black Holes Lit Up the Universe
Soon after the Big Bang, the universe went completely dark. The intense, seminal event that created the cosmos churned up so much hot, thick gas that light was completely trapped. Much later—perhaps a...

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.
Vacuum
Vacuum is space that is devoid of matter. The word stems from the Latin adjective vacuus for "vacant" or "void". An approximation to such vacuum is a region with a gaseous pressure much less than atmo...
