Bright sparks shed new light on the dark matter riddle
Washington DC (SPX) Feb 01, 2016
The origin of matter in the universe has puzzled physicists for generations. Today, we know that matter only accounts for 5% of our universe; another 25% is constituted of dark matter. And the remaining 70% is made up of dark energy. Dark matter itself represents an unsolved riddle. Physicists believe that such dark matter is composed of (as yet undefined) elementary particles that stick together thanks to gravitational force. In a study recently published in EPJ C, scientists from the CRESST-II r ... read more

Dark 'noodles' may lurk in the Milky Way
Invisible structures shaped like noodles, lasagne sheets or hazelnuts could be floating around in our Galaxy radically challenging our understanding of gas conditions in the Milky Way. CSIRO astrono ... more
The turbulent birth of a quasar
The most luminous galaxy known in the Universe - the quasar W2246-0526, seen when the Universe was less than 10% of its current age - is so turbulent that it is in the process of ejecting its entire ... more
Signs of Second Largest Black Hole in the Milky Way
Astronomers using the Nobeyama 45-m Radio Telescope have detected signs of an invisible black hole with a mass of 100 thousand times the mass of the Sun around the center of the Milky Way. The team ... more

'Most luminous galaxy' in the universe is ripping itself apart
Researchers recently discovered the universe's "most luminous galaxy" to be one of the most violently turbulent. "So chaotic that it is ripping itself apart," said astronomer Tanio Diaz-Santos. ... more
Cosmic blast could help crack the case of extreme supernova explosions
