Astronomers have detected a new type of cosmic explosion that has the characteristics of a supernova and a gamma-ray burst– two of the most powerful outbursts in the universe. In 2018, astronomers spotted a cosmic blast that has a strange behavior– dubbed the…
A Hungarian-US team of astronomers have found what may be the largest structure in the observable universe, a circular ring of nine gamma ray bursts and hence nine galaxies that stretches five billion light years across.Gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) are the most luminous
Scientists using the Fermi Large Area Telescope have come up empty handed in their quest to prove their theories about dark matter.Tom Wilson explores why institutional science remains determined in its pursuit to prove dark matter's existence.Video courtesy of The
"Fast radio bursts" (FRBs) are a new type of cosmological transients first discovered in 2007 and their physical nature is still not known. These cosmic chirps last for only a thousandth of a second and the characteristics of the radio
The most intense electromagnetic event known to occur in the heavens is the gamma-ray burst. For many years, scientists have claimed that most gamma ray burst occur when stars run out of nuclear fuel then collapse to form a black hole, neutron star or quark star.
Contrary to what most people think, it appears that gold did not form inside our planet eons ago. The reason for this conclusion is simple. Gold is heavy, and have it formed before Earth's crust solidified it would have sunk through the liquid
