Physicist Richard Schnee hopes to find traces of dark matter by studying particles with low masses and interaction rates, some of which have never been probed before. The ongoing search for invisible dark matter is the subject of a recent article involving physicists from Syracuse University's College of Arts and Sciences.
A new study of gamma-ray light from the center of our galaxy makes the strongest case to date that some of this emission may arise from dark matter, an unknown substance making up most of the material universe.
NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has uncovered the largest known population of globular star clusters, an estimated 160,000, swarming like bees inside the crowded core of the giant grouping of galaxies known as Abell 1689.
Most of the matter in the universe may be made out of particles that possess an unusual, donut-shaped electromagnetic field called an anapole.
An instrument mounted aboard the International Space Station (ISS) may have detected its first hint of dark matter.
Astronomers believe they've worked out why there are so many fewer dwarf galaxies than predicted: they're moving so fast that their gas is simply whipped away.
NASA has signed up to join the European Space Agency's (ESA's) Euclid mission, a space telescope due to launch in 2020 and designed to investigate dark matter and dark energy.
Mingus - or more formally, SN SCP-0401 - is a Type Ia supernova with a redshift of 1.71, dating back 10 billion years. It's exceptional for its detailed spectrum and precision color measurement, unprecedented in a supernova so distant, says the team.
Dark matter halos — the huge, invisible cocoons of mass that envelop entire galaxies and account for most of the matter in the universe — may not be so dark after all.
Two mathematicians have, rather bravely, proposed a unified theory of dark matter and dark energy that alters Einstein's equations describing the fundamentals of gravity.
Physicists say they've found more evidence for the existence of dark matter, in the form of gamma rays emanating from the center of the galaxy.
Swiss astronomers say they've found large amounts of dark matter near the sun, by comparing high-quality simulations with real data.
There's more atomic hydrogen in space than thought - but still not enough to solve the dark matter problem.
The theory of dark matter has taken another knock, with the discovery of a vast structure of satellite galaxies and clusters of stars surrounding our galaxy, stretching out across a million light years.
If dark matter exists, it's not hiding out in our neighbourhood, baffled scientists have revealed.
Scientists have narrowed down the range in which dark matter could exist, thanks to a new analysis technique.
Stargate SG-1 and Atlantis ended a long time ago, leaving us with only fond memories of Rodney McKay, Daniel Jackson, Samantha Carter, John Sheppard, Teal'c, Teyla Emmagan and Ronon Dex.
Astronomers have produced the most comprehensive map yet of the universe's dark matter, finding it spread in a spiderweb around which ordinary matter coalesces.
NASA scientists are using data collected by the Hubble Space Telescope to map the distribution of dark matter in 25 massive clusters of galaxies.
Galaxies are running out of the basic building blocks of stars. The universe is forming fewer stars than it used to, and an Australian research team says the reason is a shortage of molecular hydrogen.
