Stars in a galaxy 13.28 billion light-years away formed only 250 million years after the Big Bang, finds a team of international astronomers led by groups at UCL and Osaka Sangyo University in Japan. The discovery shows that stars in the galaxy - called MACS1149-JD1 - formed at an unexpectedly...
According to a straightforward interpretation of general relativity, the Big Bang wasn't the start of 'everything'. Taking Einstein's famous equations at face value and making as few assumptions as possible, a team of researchers has rewound the clock on our Universe to find it wouldn't lead to a stopping point...
An artist’s depiction of the earliest stars, which are thought to have been large and blue. Graphic: N.R.Fuller This is a HUGE moment for science. When the first stars lit the universe, it was cold and full of gas Revolutionary’ observations suggest the first stars appeared 180m years after the big bang –...
Our universe may end the same way it was created: with a big, sudden bang. That's according to new research from a group of Harvard physicists, who found that the destabilization of the Higgs boson — a tiny quantum particle that gives other particles mass — could lead to an...
Cosmologists from Britain are confused: they guess that the universe should not have lasted for more than a second. This surprising assumption is the outcome of merging the newest interpretations of the sky with the latest discovery of the Higgs boson According to Robert Hogan of King's College London (KCL),...
This image made available by SpaceX shows the company's Falcon 9 rocket booster after it landed on a drone ship in the Atlantic Ocean on Friday, May 11, 2018. Bangladesh's first satellite was lifted into orbit in the mission. (SpaceX via AP) SpaceX lifted Bangladesh's first satellite into orbit Friday...
By using data from ESA's Gaia spacecraft, astronomers have discovered a new Milky Way satellite in the constellation Antlia. The newly found dwarf galaxy, named Antlia 2, is several times larger when compared to other systems of similar luminosity and 424,000 light-years away from Earth. Read More: Stars formed only 250...
Astronomers have found what could be one of the universe's oldest stars, which almost entirely made of materials spewed from the Big Bang. It's called 2MASS J18082002–5104378 B.It opens up the possibility of observing even older stars.The discovery of this approximately 13.5 billion-year-old tiny star means more stars with very...
A massive batch of fast radio bursts has been discovered coming from the notorious repeating fast radio source FRB 121102. The data found on green Bank Telescope. Scientists trained an AI to recognize them, then put it to work on 400 TB of data. The new signals suggest they don't...
Most experts agree that the universe started as an infinitely hot and dense point called a singularity. Wait a minute. Isn't that what people call black holes? It is, in fact, and some physicists say they could be one and the same: The singularity in every black hole might give birth...
Scientists have come up with yet another way the Earth could get destroyed by cosmic objects way beyond the planet's reach. This time, it involves gravitational waves colliding to create a black hole that could lay waste to Earth. Fortunately, this appears to be an unlikely way for the apocalypse to occur. Two...
Astronomers down here on Earth identified some of the oldest galaxies in the universe. The galaxies are actually nearby, in orbit around our own Milky Way galaxy. The team from the Institute for Computational Cosmology at Durham University and the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics has found evidence that the faintest...
