According to a new U.S. research it appears that the Universe is actually getting hotter as time goes on. The mean temperature of cosmic gas has increased more than 10 times and reached about 2.2 million K.
Recently scientists suggested that have suggested the universe may be hundreds of millions of years younger. However a new observations suggest the universe is still about 13.8 billion years old.
One of the core assumptions of astronomy is that the universe appears the same in all directions, or it is isotropic. However, a recent study suggests that may not be the case.
Years of observational data, cosmological models and physics suggest the Universe is flat. However, a recent study suggests that the Universe is actually curved and closed, like an inflating sphere.
Astronomers have made a new measurement of how fast the universe is expanding, using an entirely different kind of star than previous endeavors. The revised measurement may lead to a new interpretation of the universe's fundamental properties.
It has taken researchers almost three years to produce this deepest image of the Universe ever taken from space, by recovering a large quantity of ‘lost’ light around the largest galaxies in the iconic Hubble Ultra-Deep Field.
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.
