These bursts release more energy in a few seconds than the sun would produce in its lifetime.
If you look around space, you'll notice a lot of things — the planets, stars, moons, even the galaxy itself — have one thing in common: they're spinning. So, is the universe spinning, too?
Measures of the universe's expansion taken from different sources don't match. An exotic form of dark energy particles could be the reason why.
These photons have trillions of times more energy than a garden variety light particle coming from the sun.
Black holes are engines of destruction on a cosmic scale, but they may also be the bringers of life.
The neutrinos enmeshed in the vast cosmic web could provide a glimpse of the earliest observable moment after the Big Bang.
A super-precise measurement of one of the fundamental constants of the universe suggests it's expanding faster now than it was in its early years.
The evidence for aliens around one of the weirdest stars in our galaxy — Boyajian's star — is not looking promising.
A mysterious cosmic signal that was detected above the North Pole could be coming from fast-spinning grains of dust.
