The most mysterious star in the universe
Something massive, with roughly 1,000 times the area of Earth, is blocking the light coming from a distant star known as KIC 8462852, and nobody is quite sure what it is. As astronomer Tabetha Boyajia...
"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...

FBI Shares Statistics: Which Zodiac Signs Are Most Dangerous?
The FBI shared the birth dates of serial killers and people who show psychopathic tendencies. And as you can imagine, statistics can show which star sign is more inclined to which types of crimes.
Gamma-Ray Blazars Powered By Billion-Solar-Mass Black Holes Found
Using the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescopes, astronomers found 5 early universe gamma-ray blazars. Two of them were powered by “billion-solar-mass” black hole...

Nearly a century after it was theorized, Harvard scientists have succeeded in creating metallic hydrogen. In addition to helping scientists answer fundamenta...
The Race To See The Black Hole At The Center Of Our Galaxy
We've never observed a black hole directly, but with a wild collection of telescopes, these astronomers are determined to be the first. What Can Giant Telesc...
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.
The Universe Is Flat — Now What?
Scientists know the universe is flat — so is there anything else interesting to say? Oh yes, there is.
Quantum Physicists Probe Fabric of Spacetime to Solve Mystery of Dark Energy
One of the great mysteries of the cosmos is why it is expanding at an apparently accelerating rate. Physicists have suggested an outward force, dubbed "dark energy," causes this expansion, but they ha...
Copernican Revolution
The Copernican Revolution was the paradigm shift from the Ptolemaic model of the heavens, which described the cosmos as having Earth stationary at the center of the universe, to the heliocentric model...

Cosmogony
Cosmogony (or cosmogeny) is any model concerning the coming-into-existence (i.e. origin) of either the cosmos (i.e. universe), or the so-called reality of sentient beings. Developing a complete theore...

Big Bang
The Big Bang theory is the prevailing cosmological model for the earliest known periods of the universe and its subsequent large-scale evolution. It states that the Universe was in a very high density...

Zero-energy universe
The zero-energy universe theory states that the total amount of energy in the universe is exactly zero: its amount of positive energy in the form of matter is exactly canceled out by its negative ener...
Vacuum genesis
Vacuum genesis (zero-energy universe) is a scientific theory about the Big Bang that states that the universe began as a single particle arising from an absolute vacuum, similar to how virtual particl...
Multiverse
The multiverse (or meta-universe) is the hypothetical set of infinite or finite possible universes (including the Universe we consistently experience) that together comprise everything that exists: t...
