A disk galaxy in the early universe, just 1.5 billion years after the Big Bang, somehow formed during a time of chaotic cosmic conditions.
For years, scientists debated whether the glow was a telltale sign of dark matter. A new study refutes that theory, but that only deepens the mystery.
A new study deepens the mystery behind two possible detections of rare cosmic particles.
The shadowy entities are about 10,000 to 100,000 times smaller than the dark matter halo of the Milky Way.
Scientists believe that mysterious dark matter is key to forming galaxies in the cosmos. Now, a recent series of bizarre findings threatens to undermine everything we think we know.
In a new experiment, scientists probed a theory that suggests a weird interaction between two of the biggest mysteries in physics could be why our universe exists in the first place.
The faint, 12-billion-year-old signal would lead scientists to the very first stars and illuminate the origins of the modern universe, dark matter, and, well, everything.
LIGO, the observatory that detected the first gravitational wave, stretches for miles. The Levitated Sensor Detector would fit in your living room.
But news reports continue to suggest that ex-NSA hackers are helping the country hack and surveil its citizens.
Can one of Einstein’s forgotten theories solve the riddle of why 95 percent of the stuff in the universe appears to be missing?
A statistical analysis of 740 supernovas found that black holes can only account for 40 percent of dark matter in the universe, putting another nail in the coffin for the MACHOs theory of dark matter.
Davide D’Angelo wasn’t always interested in dark matter, but now he’s at the forefront of the hunt to find the most elusive particle in the universe.
