A forgotten model of the universe
A paper published in EPJ H provides the first English translation and an analysis of one of Albert Einstein's little-known papers, "On the cosmological problem of the general theory of relativity." Published in 1931, it features a forgotten model of the universe, while refuting Einstein's own earlier static model of 1917. View News Article (2014-02-20)

Einstein's conversion from a static to an expanding universe
Until 1931, physicist Albert Einstein believed that the universe was static. An urban legend attributes this change of perspective to when American astronomer Edwin Hubble showed Einstein his observations of redshift in the light emitted by far away nebulae - today known as galaxies. View News Article (2014-02-18)

HKUST-Harvard Scientists discovered ways to clock the beginning of the Universe
While the Big Bang theory has been a very successful model of the birth of our universe, astrophysical observations found that it does require very special initial conditions. Determining the primordial universe scenario that preceded the Big Bang and gave rise to such initial conditions has been a topic of contention among scientists. View News Article (2016-01-27)

Dartmouth researchers shed new light on dark energy, cosmic speed-up
In a new study, Dartmouth researchers rule out a controversial theory that the accelerating expansion of the universe is an illusion. View News Article (2013-11-07)

How Old is the Universe?
Most astronomers would agree that the age of the Universe - the time elapsed since the "Big Bang" - is one of the "holy grails of cosmology". Despite great efforts during recent years, the various estimates of this basic number have resulted in rather diverse values. When derived from current cosmological models, it depends on a number of theoretical assumptions that are not very well constrained... View News Article (2001-02-06)

Why matter matters in the universe
A new physics discovery explores why there is more matter than antimatter in the universe. View News Article (2008-03-31)

What if there is only 1 universe?
Lee Smolin, author of the bestselling science book The Trouble with Physics and a founding member and research physicist at the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics in Waterloo, Canada, writes exclusively in the June issue of Physics World explaining why theories of cosmology that suggest that our universe is just one of many - the so-called multiverse - and thus perpetuate the notion that...

Gravity may have saved the universe after the Big Bang, say researchers
New research by a team of European physicists could explain why the universe did not collapse immediately after the Big Bang. View News Article (2014-11-19)

Scientists use world's fastest supercomputer to model origins of the unseen universe
Understanding dark energy is the number one issue in explaining the universe, according to Salman Habib, of the Laboratory's Nuclear and Particle Physics, Astrophysics and Cosmology group. View News Article (2009-10-27)

New space telescope aims to seek out and record explosive gamma ray bursts.
A state of the art space telescope built by scientists at UCL will make its way to the Goddard Space Flight Centre in Maryland, USA on a mission to unravel the mysteries of the universes gamma rays. The telescope - called UVOT - will be one of three telescopes on a special NASA orbiting space observatory planned for launch in 2003. The observatory , called SWIFT, has been specially designed to... View News Article (2002-05-31)
