Big Bang's 'lithium mystery' remains a mystery

Scientists have revealed that astrophysics are still clueless about the quantities of lithium predicted to have resulted from the Big Bang which were not found to be actually present in stars, known as the "lithium problem".

Understanding formation of galaxies could solve mystery of dark matter

Scientists have revealed that a new supercomputer simulation have shown the evolution of our "local Universe" from the Big Bang to the present day, and has also improved the chances of understanding dark matter.

Big Bang breakthrough: Scientists differ on BICEP2 findings

Earlier in March, astronomers announced that they had discovered the gravitational ripples in space-time that are echoes of the massive expansion of the universe that took place just after the Big Bang.

Light from star explosion 12 bn years ago detected

In what could provide new insight into the structure of the early universe, light from the enormous explosion of a star more than 12 billion years ago - shortly after the Big Bang - was recently seen reaching earth.

Massive burst of light from huge explosion soon after Big Bang reaches Earth

Researchers have said that intense light from an enormous explosion of a star more than 12 billion years ago - shortly after the Big Bang - recently reached Earth and was visible in the sky.

Big Bang signal too weak to be significant: Study

The signal of Big Bang ripples announced in March this year was too weak to be significant, two separate analyses say, suggesting the astronomers had jumped the gun.

Researchers have detected a subtle distortion in the oldest light in the universe, which may they believe might help unravel secrets about the early moments in the universe`s formation.

Dartmouth researchers claim there may be no dark energy

Dartmouth researchers have ruled out a controversial theory, claiming that the accelerating expansion of the universe is an illusion.

How supermassive black holes are formed

Over billions of years, small black holes can slowly grow supermassive by taking on mass from their surroundings and also by merging with other black holes.
