- 1460 days ago -
In the most anticipated announcement in physics since the discovery of the Higgs Boson, the first detection of a gravitational wave has been reported.
'Smoking Gun' Reveals How the Inflationary Big Bang Happened
Science & Tech  (tags: cosmology, universe, origins, Big Bang )

- 1461 days ago -
New findings show that the universe underwent a burst of inflation that was seemingly faster than the speed of light in the first instant of its existence, throwing off a storm of exotic gravitational waves in the process.
Big Bang Breakthrough Announced; Gravity Waves Detected
Science & Tech  (tags: cosmology, Big Bang, gravity waves )

- 1461 days ago -
There's no way for us to know exactly what happened some 13.8 billion years ago, when our universe burst onto the scene. But scientists announced Monday a breakthrough in understanding how our world as we know it came to be.
50 Years After Big Bang Theory, We're Still Not Sure What Happened

- 1484 days ago -
Half a century after the idea that the universe began with a colossal explosion was first proposed, scientists are still trying to figure out what exactly happened. They're also hoping to build the largest machine in the world to find out.
Massive Neutrinos Help Correct the Standard Model of Cosmology

- 1494 days ago -
The standard model of physics has problems. Until recently, one of these problems was the lack of correct accounting of the mass of neutrinos. Previous studies have estimated the mass, but there has not before been a precise measurement.
Universe Is Older Than We Thought, Planck Telescope Reveals
Science & Tech  (tags: ancient, Big Bang, cosmology, astronomy, space, research, discovery, science, interesting )

- 1822 days ago -
New results from looking at the split-second after the Big Bang indicate the universe is 80 million years older than previously thought, but core concepts in physics about the cosmos -- how it began, what it's made of and where it's going -- seem to be OK.
New 'Baby Picture' of Universe Unveiled
Science & Tech  (tags: cosmology, space, universe )

- 1911 days ago -
Astronomers have released a new "baby picture" of the universe. The all-sky image draws on nine years' worth of data from a now-retired spacecraft dubbed the Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP).
The Enduring Mystery of Life's Origin

- 2211 days ago -
While many of the molecules important for life have been detected in space, and meteorites and comets possibly could contain life itself, that doesn't necessarily mean life came to Earth from space. While some experiments suggest the transfer of life...
"Was the Universe Created By A Big Bang?" -Several of the World's Leading Cosmologists Say "No"
Science & Tech  (tags: science, technology, astrophysics, cosmology, Big Bang )

- 2951 days ago -
Several of the worlds leading astrophysicists believe there was no Big Bang that brought the universe and time into existence. Before the Big Bang, the standard theory assumes, there was no space, just nothing. Einstein merged the universe into a single e
Mystery Roar From Faraway Space Detected
Science & Tech  (tags: science, astronomy, radio waves, Cosmology, Astrophysics )

- 3351 days ago -
Scientists have detected radio waves from deep space that are six times louder than any other radio waves ever detected. This is a HUGE order of magnitude, as the article explains.
Hints of 'Time Before Big Bang'
Science & Tech  (tags: cosmology )

- 3571 days ago -
A team of physicists has claimed that our view of the early Universe may contain the signature of a time before the Big Bang.
Scientists Find That Time Is Literally Slowing Down and Disappearing From Our Universe
Science & Tech  (tags: tech, science, scientists, time, discovery, cosmology, space, study, technology, world, Astronomers, research, discovery )

- 3726 days ago -
Remember a little thing called the space-time continuum? New evidence is suggesting that time is slowly disappearing from our universe, and will one day vanish completely, which explains a cosmological mystery that has baffled scientists for years.
