Study suggests faint galaxies illuminated early universe

A new study has found that the light from tiny galaxies more than 13 billion years ago played a larger role than previously thought in creating the conditions in the universe as we know it today.

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.

Radiation from early universe may help prove Einstein`s theory of general relativity

Researchers have measured the minute gravitational distortions in polarized radiation from the early universe and discovered that these ancient microwaves can provide a cosmological test of Einstein`s theory of general relativity.

Astronomers discover fossil galaxy revealing early universe facts

Astronomers have discovered a new galaxy called as ``fossil galaxy`` which is believed to be a left over from the early universe.

Early universe `warmed up` much later than previously believed

A new study reveals that black holes, formed from the first stars in our universe, heated the gas throughout space later than previously thought.

Early universe was less dusty than believed

Dust may be more rare - even 100 times less - than expected in galaxies of the early Universe, a new study has found.

Magnetic field strengths in early universe calculated

In a new study, researchers have tried to find just how the magnetic forces came into existence.

NASA will hold a media teleconference next month to discuss new measurements using gamma rays to investigate ancient starlight with the agency’s Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope.

Giant telescope to explore early universe

Scientists at the University of Arizona and in California have completed the most challenging large astronomical mirror ever made.

Fireworks marked growth of galaxies in early universe

Growth of galaxies in the early universe was often accompanied by fireworks in the form of energy bursts caused by the massive central black hole accretion, astronomers said.

Explosion during galaxy formation illuminated early universe

The birth of the first massive galaxies that lit up the early universe was an explosive event, happening faster and ending sooner than suspected, according to a analysis of data from the South Pole Telescope.
