One of the greatest challenges of the modern astrophysics is an explanation about the origin (or formation) and evolution of the universe. This issue has been a heated source of discussions during the past centuries and even before since man began to learn about the universe. Following Einstein’s general theory of relativity in 1917 about [...]

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

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 [...]

We have known, for a long time that there was more to the universe than stars. In fact, the ability to remain on the earth, without falling off, while it spins, is testimony that something else has a drastic effect on…well, everything. When we look deeper into this phenomenon, we find dark matter. What and [...]

If you thought the discovery of the Higgs Boson was monumental, then brace yourself. The large Hadron Collider (LHC) may have stumbled upon something much bigger than that. According to a paper in the Physics Letter B, the large Hadron Collider could detect mini black holes. If this is true, it could mean more than [...]

Dark Matter May Be Responsible for Mass Extinctions On Earth

It is well known that astronomical events have a direct connection with events on earth. The tides of the ocean, for instance, are influenced by the phases of the moon. This is only one event that displays the speculator connection between the earth and the universe. If the moon can affect the tides, then why [...]

Did the Big Bang really happen? Probably not, according to two physicists who wish to revive one of the most popular arguments of the twentieth century. What these guys think is completely different from what cosmologists thought about the universe. Where did the Big Bang theory come from? The words “Big Bang theory” came from [...]

Let’s consider a few astrological discoveries made in the previous year: Dark matter – it has been ascertained that dark matter is only as mysterious as dark energy, which gives us a deeper look into the riddles of space. Exoplanets, heavenly bodies in distant galaxies, have given promise to life sustaining materials and habitable conditions. [...]
