Australia had plenty of moon units gazing up at Earth's major orbiter early this morning, as a red, dead moondemption eclipsed the threat of ash - but wasn't able to overcome view-marring cloudy weather for some.

Scaling the Universe

Some things are more relative than others, they say, and some are more incomprehensible too. Every now and then It pays to review our position in the scale of things, helping us to renew our wonderment about the cosmos and understand better the relative import of daily dramas and events.

The Planck Space Telescope has produced its first full-sky image of light from 380 million years after the Big Bang: what is called 'first light.' It is the sharpest image yet to be produced of the early universe.

Could dark part of Universe not exist?

An U.K. study performed at Durham University suggests that the amount of dark matter and dark energy that astronomers contend to exist in the universe could be wrong. The U.K. astronomers say it might not even be out there.

Scientists say universe is 20M years older

According to data analyzed from the Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP), astrophysicists from Princeton University and Johns Hopkins University state they now know the age of the Universe even more precisely than before, and it is a little older than earlier thought.

A European physicist states that a new single-particle model reveals how the universe was initially created, as well as its subsequent expansion into its present form. This is the final installment in a three-part interview with the author of the cosmological theory he calls the extended Standard Model, or xSM.

Australian researchers have measured the amount of entropy that exists now in the Universe. They found that the Universe has much less energy available than had been previously measured. Are they right? Is the Universe aging faster?

The evolution of galaxies has taken a diverse road over 13.7 billion years or so. Their shapes were classified by U.S. astronomer Edwin Hubble in the 1930s. Now, in the 2010s, two U.S. physicists have finally, for the first time, explained in detail how and why those shapes came to be.

A European physicist states that an elementary-particle model, called the extended Standard Model, reveals how the universe was initially created, as well as its subsequent expansion into its present form. He continues his question-and-answer discussion of his xSM theory here'”in an exclusive interview with the author.

Hubble creates panorama of earliest seen universe

Astronomers with the Hubble Space Telescope project revealed a stunning view of the youngest galaxies ever seen by humans; those formed only 600 to 800 million years after the Big Bang. Ah, they were just babies back then!

WISE satellite to look for darkest objects in universe

The U.S. space agency NASA is expecting to launch its Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer satellite on Friday, December 11, 2009. The WISE satellite will explore the ultraviolet portions of the universe from some of the coolest stars ever produced to some of the darkest of the dwarf stars and asteroids.

The Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder (ASKAP) project has succeeded in contracting for land in Western Australia (WA) following its meetings with the Wajarri Yamatji people. It is an important step in being able to construct the telescope array by 2012.

NASA’s Swift satellite first observed a star explosion in April 2009. It turns out that this gamma-ray burst came from a star that exploded about 13 billion years ago, the furthest that astronomers have looked back at the early beginnings of our universe.

It is well known in science that three forces'”electromagnetic, strong, and weak'”govern the microscopic world of elementary particles. However, the reason why any of these forces exist in the first place is a question that is seldom asked and has never been satisfactorily answered. The theory called "Predictive Cosmology" claims to state the reason and provides the answer through mμ/me = 206.768 283. Could this be a breakthrough in theoretical physics?

Herschel and Planck join Hubble in space

An Ariane rocket blasted off from French Guiana carrying the Herschel Space Observatory and the Planck Observatory. They are set to explore the early formation of our Universe and help us better explain our very existence. A soon-to-be rejuvenated Hubble Space Telescope will do likewise.

Published in Space
Two missions to study the very beginnings of our Universe are scheduled to launch together from French Guiana on May 14, 2009. Once in space, they take different paths to a point about 930,000 miles from Earth where they will peek into a time when the Universe was merely the age of a baby--only 400,000 million years old.
