The Universe Is Expanding Faster Than Expected

The Universe Is Expanding Faster Than Expected

One possibility to explain the speed in which the universe is expanding – is that dark energy, already known to be accelerating the cosmos, maybe shoving galaxies away from each other with even greater — or growing — strength. This means that the acceleration itself might not have a constant value in the universe but changes over time in the universe. #theuniverse

Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity Confirmed By Researchers Aided By a White Dwarf

Albert Einstein predicted that whenever light from a distant star passes by a closer object, gravity acts as a kind of magnifying lens, brightening and bending the distant starlight. Yet, in a 1936 article in the journal Science, he added that because stars are so far apart “there is no hope of observing this phenomenon directly.” Until now!

Today Is 25th Anniversary of Hubble’s First Photo: Video Shows How Far We’ve Come

The Hubble Space Telescope is known for its dazzling images of cosmic phenomena, but it didn’t exactly start that way. Its first ever image, captured 25 years ago today, is decidedly less exciting. This is HD96755, a part of star cluster NGC 3532, about 1,300 light years away. It underwhelmed people back then, too.
