Astrophysics & Cosmology
Astronomers around the world are looking for visible sources of gravitational waves.
The upgraded experiment aims to discover if neutrinos are their own antiparticles.
Computer simulations and lab experiments help researchers understand the violent universe and could potentially lead to new technologies that benefit humankind.
The discovery supports a powerful tool for discovering galaxies that are otherwise too distant to observe, and could lead to advances that improve our understanding of dark matter.
One: The Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment will look for more than just neutrinos.
A new experiment at the South Pole picks up where BICEP2 left off.
It will provide new insights into the physics of black holes, the formation of chemical elements, stars and galaxies, and the evolution of the universe itself.
Dark matter hunters around the world pursue three approaches to look for fingerprints of ghostly WIMPs: on the Earth’s surface, underground and in space.
Analyzing the motion of X-ray sources could help researchers identify dark matter signals.
Roger Blandford, professor of physics, has been awarded the 2016 Crafoord prizes in astronomy from the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences.
