German researchers have generated “negative temperatures” they say are hotter than infinity, with applications for over 100-percent efficient engines, and insights into dark energy.
Observations of a massive filament of dark matter could be representative of the cosmic web underlying our universe, suggesting that more than half our universe’s mass is [...]
Despite looking alike, thermonuclear or Type Ia supernova explosions come from different types of stars with implications for our understanding of dark energy.
A hypothetical phase of galaxy formation may have been observed with the European Southern Observatory’s (ESO) Very Large Telescope (VLT).
The European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) has shown a particle with a mass which matches that of the hypothesized Higgs boson or so-called god particle.
Theoretical particles called axions may build up around black holes, where they could absorb energy and be detected via gravity waves.
Majorana particles may have been detected for the first time since their theoretical existence was first proposed in the 1930s, with potential applications for quantum computing.
Galaxy-X is about 260,000 light-years from here. It’s dominated by dark matter and is one percent the mass of our Milky Way Galaxy.
Dark matter may exist at the center of the sun, a scientist at the Royal Holloway University of London said.
A computer simulation showing the formation and evolution of a galaxy like the Milky Way points to where scientists should look to spot dark matter, international researchers [...]
