CERN scientists predict supernova
A team of theoretical physicists working at CERN and the Technion Institute of Technology in Israel has developed a theory to account for the mysterious gamma ray bursts that come from the depths of the Universe. According to their ideas, gamma ray bursts are linked to supernovae, the cataclysmic explosions of massive stars at the end of their lives. When a new gamma ray burst (GRB 030329) was...

Earth not center of the universe, surrounded by 'dark energy': UBC cosmologists
Earth's location in the Universe is utterly unremarkable, despite recent theories that propose toppling a foundation of modern cosmology, according to a team of University of British Columbia researchers. View News Article (2008-12-19)

Cosmologists 'see' the cosmic dawn
The images, produced by scientists at Durham University's Institute for Computational Cosmology, show the "Cosmic Dawn" - the formation of the first big galaxies in the Universe. View News Article (2009-02-11)

El Gordo - A 'Fat' Distant Galaxy Cluster
An extremely hot, massive young galaxy cluster - the largest ever seen in the distant Universe - has been studied by an international team using ESO's Very Large Telescope (VLT) in the Atacama Desert in Chile along with NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory and the Atacama Cosmology Telescope.  View News Article (2012-01-11)

Massive neutrinos solve a cosmological conundrum
Scientists have solved a major problem with the current standard model of cosmology identified by combining results from the Planck spacecraft and measurements of gravitational lensing in order to deduce the mass of ghostly sub-atomic particles called neutrinos. View News Article (2014-02-11)

'Galactic archaeologists' find origin of Milky Way's ancient stars
Many of the Milky Way's ancient stars are remnants of other smaller galaxies torn apart by violent galactic collisions around five billion years ago, according to researchers at Durham University. View News Article (2010-06-30)

ESO-CERN-ESA Symposium on Astronomy, Cosmology and Fundamental Physics
A Press Conference will be held in Garching (near Munich, Bavaria, Germany) on Thursday, March 7, 2002, 12:15 - 13:00 CET, on the occasion of the ESO-CERN-ESA Symposium on Astronomy, Cosmology and Fundamental Physics. This is the first joint conference on subjects of mutual interest organised by these three leading European Intergovernmental Research Organisations, under the umbrella of the...

Dynamic, dark energy in an accelerating universe
It was cosmology that drew Irene Sendra from Valencia to the Basque Country. Cosmology alsogave her the chance to collaborate with one of the winners of the 2011 Nobel Prize for Physics on one of the darkest areas of the universe. View News Article (2013-01-15)

Could the Higgs boson explain the size of the Universe?
The Universe wouldn't be the same without the Higgs boson. This legendary particle plays a role in cosmology and reveals the possible existence of another closely related particle.  View News Article (2011-09-22)

Giant simulation could solve mystery of 'dark matter'
The search for a mysterious substance which makes up most of the Universe could soon be at an end, according to new research. View News Article (2008-11-06)
