They have also posited the existence of a "dark energy" that is more powerful than gravitational attraction. These two hypotheses, … [Read more...] about Dark matter and dark energy: Do they really exist?
When was dark energy discovered
Simulation DESI will make a full 3-D map pinpointing galaxies’ locations across the universe. The map, unprecedented in its size and scope, will allow scientists to test theories of dark energy, the mysterious force that appears to cause the accelerating expansion and … [Read more...] about Next-gen Experiment will Create Largest 3-D Map of Universe, Help Test Dark Energy Theories
Data Analysis New Dark Energy Findings Support Einstein's Cosmological ConstantNSF-funded 10-meter South Pole Telescope in Antarctica provides new support for the most widely accepted explanation of dark energy, the source of the mysterious force that is responsible for the … [Read more...] about New Dark Energy Findings Support Einstein’s Cosmological Constant
Arizona State University astronomers Sangeeta Malhotra and James Rhoads, working with international teams in Chile and China, have discovered 23 young galaxies, seen as they were 800 million years after the Big Bang. The results from this sample have been recently published in … [Read more...] about Using Powerful Dark Energy Camera, Scientists Reach the Cosmic Dawn
A cosmic ray detector designed to search for antimatter made its way to the Kennedy Space Center Friday in preparation for a February launch that will take it to the International Space Station on the final space shuttle flight. "All but two of the scientists who collaborated on … [Read more...] about SPACE Dark Matter Detector Poised for Magical Mystery Tour
