Astrophysics & Cosmology
Two astrophysicists and a theoretical physicist discuss how the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope will probe the nature of dark matter and dark energy by taking an unprecedentedly enormous scan of the sky.
Astrophysicists Eric Charles and Mattia Di Mauro discuss the surprising glow of our neighbor galaxy.
Most experiments searching for mysterious dark matter require massive colliders, but Stanford physicist and SLAC collaborator Peter Graham advocates a different, less costly approach.
What are parallel universes, and why do we think they might exist?
KIPAC’s Ralf Kaehler and Tom Abel contributed two scenes to the science documentary narrated by Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett.
Underground experiment passes critical DOE review and prepares for startup in 2020.
Three recent studies using data from the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope have expanded the hunt for unexplained signals coming from beyond our galaxy.
A previously detected, anomalously large X-ray signal is absent in new Hitomi satellite data, setting tighter limits for a dark matter interpretation.
How do scientists know what percentages of the universe are made up of dark matter and dark energy?
The Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument will measure light from 35 million cosmic objects for new insights into what causes the universe to expand faster and faster.
