The Average Temperature of the Universe Is Getting Hotter

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.

The Most Comprehensive 3D Map of Galaxies

A team of U.S. astronomers have created the Pan-STARRS1 Source Types and Redshifts with Machine Learning (PS1-STRM), the world’s largest three-dimensional astronomical catalog.

Total amount of matter in Cosmos

U.S. scientists have precisely measured the total amount of matter making up the cosmos, concluding that dark energy accounts for 69 % of the total mass-energy budget with normal and dark matter being 31.5 %.

New research of oldest light confirms age of the universe

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.

Biggest-Ever 3D Map of the Universe

Hundreds of scientists from about 30 institutions worldwide have published the largest-ever 3D map of the Universe, the result of an analysis of more than 4 million galaxies and ultra-bright, energy-packed quasars. 

How the universe got its structure

The universe is full of billions of galaxies. Why do we see so much structure in the universe today? A 10-year survey of tens of thousands of galaxies has provided a new approach to answering this fundamental mystery.

The Universe may not look the same in all directions

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. 

New Study Suggests The Universe Is a Closed Sphere

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.

New hints to the mystery of universe's expansion

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.

Deepest Image of the Universe Ever Taken

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.

Our universe: An expanding bubble in an extra dimension

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.

Fossil from the Big Bang discovered

A relic cloud of gas, orphaned after the Big Bang, has been discovered in the distant universe by astronomers using the world's most powerful optical telescope, the W. M. Keck Observatory on Maunakea, Hawaii.

Astonishing New Theory Could Explain Universe’s Missing 95%

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.

Expanding Universe Mystery Deepens

An important discrepancy in measurements of the universe’s acceleration has theorists wondering whether we’ve gotten something fundamentally wrong in our understanding of the history of the universe.

Some good came out of 2018: Astronomy photos

Each year, the Insight competition reminds us of how amazing our Universe is.
