'Big Bounce' behind birth of universe?

'Big Bounce' behind birth of universe?

The universe is currently expanding and it is believed to have burst into existence from a point of infinitely dense and hot material, an event dubbed as the Big Bang.

Original seeds of monster black holes detected, claim astronomers

Original seeds of monster black holes detected, claim astronomers

"Black hole seeds are extremely hard to find and confirming their detection is very difficult. However, we think our research has uncovered the two best candidates so far," said Andrea Grazian, study co-author from National Institute for Astrophysics in Italy.

The team made detailed analyses of imaging data of these galaxies taken by the Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS) on the Hubble Space Telescope. 

NASA's Hubble breaks cosmic distance record; spots farthest known galaxy in universe

NASA's Hubble breaks cosmic distance record; spots farthest known galaxy in universe

Previously, the team had estimated GN-z11's distance by determining its colour through imaging with Hubble and NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope.

US physicists discover new elementary particle

There are six types, or "flavours," of quarks: up, down, strange, charm, bottom and top. Each of these also has an antimatter counterpart.

Second milder 'Big Bang' created massive dark matter: Physicists

A team of US scientists has challenged the popular scientific model that the physical universe - space, time, matter and energy - ballooned out from a very hot and dense point and inflated with a Big Bang into how we see the universe today.

Early universe evolution can be perceived from 'Green pea galaxy'

Early universe evolution can be perceived from 'Green pea galaxy'

According to a recent study, newly formed dwarf galaxies were likely the reason that the universe heated up about 13 billion years ago.

Astronomers spot most massive galaxy cluster ever

A team of astronomers have detected a massive, sprawling and churning galaxy cluster that formed only 3.8 billion years after the Big Bang and is 1,000 times more massive than our Milky Way galaxy.

Fossils of galaxies have revealed the formation and evolution of massive galaxies.

LHC produces state of matter existing at birth of universe

Scientists at CERN have produced tiny droplets of a state of matter thought to have existed right at the birth of the universe, after slamming particles together at high energy in the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).

Farthest-ever galaxy detected

A team of researchers from California Institute of Technology (Caltech) has detected a 13.2-billion-years old galaxy which may be the most distant galaxy ever found.

Galaxies changed their shapes after Big Bang

Galaxies changed their shapes after Big Bang

A large proportion of galaxies have undergone a major 'metamorphosis' since they were initially formed after the Big Bang, scientists have found for the first time.

Astronomers uncover evidence of galaxy metamorphosis

From round disks to oval clusters; many galaxies in the Universe have undergone a dramatic transformation over the past eight billion years or so, researchers reported on Thursday.

Universe `resting on sofa` as it slowly dies

The Universe is experiencing a slow death, like a person resting on the sofa awaiting eternal sleep, according to astronomers from a project which measured the energy generated by 200,000 galaxies.
