“The wormholes we are considering are traversable wormholes, so theoretically spacecraft can travel through them,” said the lead author of a new study.
It has taken virtually the entire lifespan of the universe for the light from the 'Web of the Giant' to reach Earth.
M87*, the first black hole ever to be directly imaged, has a newly-identified feature: it glitters and wobbles, according to new research.
Dark matter lenses, which distort and amplify light from background objects, may be more abundant in galaxy clusters than expected.
A merger with a black hole possessing an unexplained 'forbidden mass' created the first conclusive example of an intermediate black hole in the most massive merger ever detected using ripples in spacetime.
The discovery of the bridge is another tantalizing step towards observing the cosmic web: the vast network of dark matter and hydrogen gas believed to form the backbone of the universe.
Earth and Jupiter appear to give some passing spacecraft a speed boost, a persistent anomaly so mysterious and unexplained that its very existence is controversial.
12 billion light years from Earth, scientists spotted a galaxy that is the spitting image of a young Milky Way. Its discovery challenges our understanding of the early universe.
“Just months before the end, after we’ve lost the outer planets to the great and growing blackness, the Earth drifts away from the Sun, and the Moon from the Earth. We too enter the darkness, alone.”
This is the result of a 20-year collaboration of several hundred scientists from around 30 different institutions worldwide.
The half-exploded star is careening across the Milky Way at 900,000 kilometres per hour, according to a new study by international researchers.
Where did the elements that make up our bodies come from? How fast is the universe accelerating? A pair of dead stars, among the weirdest scientists have seen, could point toward the answers.
