    Harvard Astonomer Talks Other Life in the Universe

    According to Harvard University Astrophysics professor and department chair Avi Loeb, there is likely life outside of our planet and he says, “we are not special. When we thought that we were at the center of the universe we were proven wrong. The sun does not move around the earth.”

    ‘We Are Not Special': Harvard Professor Discusses Life Outside Our Planet, Possible Extraterrestrial Flyby

    According to a prominent Harvard University professor, it’s possible that there was an extraterrestrial flyby last year. There are 100 billion galaxies in the universe, and in each galaxy there are approximately 100 million stars. Some of those stars are similar to our sun, and around those “suns” are planets, which are likely very similar to Earth. It’s possible that...

    Hawking's Last Physics Paper Argues for a ‘Simpler' Cosmos

    Weeks after his death, physicist Stephen Hawking has delivered his last thoughts about the nature of the cosmos, and he says it may be simpler than often believed. Well, simpler if you understand theoretical physics, anyway. It remains incomprehensible for the rest of us. A paper that outlines his view, written with Thomas Hertog of the University of Leuven in...

    The Center of the Milky Way Is Teeming With Black Holes: Study

    The center of our galaxy is teeming with black holes, sort of like a Times Square for strange super gravity objects, astronomers discovered. For decades, scientists theorized that circling in the center of galaxies, including ours, were lots of stellar black holes, collapsed giant stars where the gravity is so strong even light doesn’t get out. But they hadn’t seen...

    Astronomers Glimpse Cosmic Dawn, When the Stars Switched On

    For the first time, astronomers have glimpsed the dawn of the universe 13.6 billion years ago when the earliest stars were just beginning to glow after the Big Bang. And if that’s not enough, they may have detected mysterious dark matter at work, too....
    The glimpse consisted of a faint radio signal from deep space, picked up by an antenna that...

    Lack of Evidence Put Hawking's Nobel Hopes in Black Hole

    Stephen Hawking won accolades from his peers for having one of the most brilliant minds in science, but he never got a Nobel Prize because no one has yet proven his ideas. The Nobel committee looks for proof, not big ideas. Hawking was a deep thinker — a theorist — and his musings about black holes and cosmology have yet...
