The survey, which included 400 individual scientists from 25 institutions in 7 countries, observed over 226 million galaxies. The goal of the survey was to the distribution of dark matter and the effect of dark energy.
Swedish researchers have devised a new model for the Universe, that may solve the enigma of dark energy. They proposes a new structural concept of a universe that rides on an expanding bubble in an additional dimension.
UK researcher, Jamie Farnes, suggests both dark energy and matter can be unified into a single substance — a negative-mass ‘dark fluid.’ The theory may also prove right a prediction that Albert Einstein made 100 years ago.
The Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument, or DESI, is being assembled for a five-year mission at the prime focus of the Mayall Telescope, to measure the spectra of more than 30 million galaxies and quasars.
While there is no physical evidence that parallel universes exist, the theories that explain how our universe came to be seem to suggest that they are inevitable.
Lengthy observations by the Hubble Space Telescope indicate the universe is expanding faster than predicted by standard models and that Einstein’s cosmological constant, thought by many to define dark energy, may not be so constant after all.
Results from the first data release of the Dark Energy Survey include eleven new stellar streams in the Milky Way galaxy.
New research is adding some deeper insight into the mysterious repulsive force known as dark energy, providing evidence that whatever it might be, its ghostly influence hasn't been constant over time.
An international team of astronomers reports that they were able to achieve four times better precision in measurements of how the universe's visible matter is clustered together by studying the empty spaces in between.
The most precise measurement ever made of the current rate of expansion of the Universe has been achieved by physicists in the US, and there's a problem: the Universe is expanding 8 percent faster than our current laws of physics can explain.
