From stargazing in the desert to alien rock formations, these are the spots we love to reconnect with the universe.
A forgotten idea of Albert Einstein’s might just be the saviour of cosmology, plus the great man’s (vain) quest to undermine quantum weirdness and the question of why the universe looks “just right” for our existence
Perhaps the oldest and grandest question asked by humanity is “How did the universe come into existence?”
The Kalam cosmological argument asserts that everything that exists has a cause, and what caused the Universe? It’s got to be God.
Even if we left today, at the speed of light, we’d never catch up to these galaxies.
Telescopes are time machines. Someday, they could take us to a time before starlight.
The Uchuu simulation is the largest and most detailed simulation of the Universe ever made. It contains 2.1 trillion ‘particles’ in a space 9.6 billion light-years across. The simulation models the evolution of the Universe across more than 13 billion years.
It would take 15 billion years for the clock that occupies Jun Ye’s basement lab at the University of Colorado to lose a second—about how long the universe has existed.
Why is space so cold if the sun is so hot? Excellent question. Unlike our mild habitat here on Earth, our solar system is full of temperature extremes.
Research reveals how star-making pollutes the cosmos.
