NASA researchers plan to create the coldest spot in the known Universe, inside the International Space Station. The device, known as the Cold Atom Lab, could discover new forms of matter and novel quantum phenomena. Image © NASA
Danger: Humans. A message from the Interstellar Safety Council. What if the rest of the universe wasn’t built on “survival of the fittest”? Take a look at the video…
What is Gravity? In this One Minute Physics episode, you can find out the basic nature of gravity, one of the four fundamental forces in our universe. Stephen Hawking during a zero-gravity flight. Image © Zero G. Watch the video…
The Boomerang nebula is the coldest known object in the Universe. Is colder, in fact, than the faint afterglow of the Big Bang, at a cosmologically crisp one degree Kelvin (minus 458 degrees Fahrenheit). Image © NRAO/AUI/NSF/NASA/STScI/JPL-Caltech
Scientists detect the most distant spectroscopically confirmed galaxy ever found — one created within 700 million years after the Big Bang.
Stephen Hawking‘s big ideas… made simple – in just two and a half minutes animation, for those who have no time to read “A Brief History of Time.” Watch the video…
A new theory claims that the Black Hole might have started Universe. As cosmologists have speculated, the Big Bang theory may be a myth and that the Universe was created by a Black Hole, from a collapsing star. Image © NASA
Astronomers discovered the most powerful magnetic field in Universe, in a dead star containing the equivalent mass of our Sun into an area just 12 miles across. The magnetar is 20 trillion times stronger than a fridge magnet.
