What Is Dark Matter? New Research Sheds New Light on This Unsolved Mystery

By | March 4th, 2016|Categories: Physics & Natural Sciences, Uncommon Science, Universe|Tags: , , , |

Dark matter is one of the unsolved mysteries in physics and astrophysics. This hidden matter, which is believed to form as much as 85% of the total matter in the universe, was first introduced about 60 years ago by the astronomer Fritz Zwicky. He developed and later proposed his “missing matter" theory to explain why [...]

The Discovery of Gravitational Waves Is Now a Reality – What’s Next?

Since a century ago, new physics theories and ideas have led to many revolutionary results. Quantum mechanics and relativity theory and their profound concepts have not only changed our basic understanding of physics from domain of elementary particles to that of the whole universe , but their weird interpretation of space, time, structure of matter, universe, [...]

Is Travel to the Past Practically Possible?

The issue of travel to the past has been a topic of great interest for the scientific community as well as the fans of science fiction, yet its feasibility has equally been a topic of intensively heated debates. Before the introduction of relativity theory (RT) and quantum mechanics (QM), our common-sense view of the universe [...]

Collision of Binary Black Holes May Unravel the Mysteries of Gravitational Radiation

By | November 5th, 2015|Categories: Physics & Natural Sciences, Uncommon Science, Universe|Tags: , , |

One of the most fantastic predictions of Einstein’s general theory of relativity has been the existence of gravitational radiation. Should gravitational waves be real, it means that the empty space as a medium for propagation of gravitational waves can itself oscillate and move. Since its prediction in 1917, a lot of research has been made [...]

Astronomers Discover a Galaxy Powered by Two Black Holes

By | October 25th, 2015|Categories: Uncommon Science, Universe|Tags: , , , |

Black holes are regarded as the most extreme case of gravity. They are objects so compact with extremely high gravity that even light cannot escape. Their properties were first studied by the famous American physicists Robert Oppenheimer and Hartland Snyder in 1939 who theoretically proved that whenever a star of sufficient mass stop burning, it [...]

The Collision of Two Supermassive Black Holes Could Shake the Universe
