To solve the Crisis in Cosmology, astronomers are measuring the Hubble constant with magnetars, neutron stars with strong magnetic fields.
Masers are an example of how naturally occurring phenomena could create coherent and amplified radiation making them useful in astronomy
Astrophysicists count the number of mysterious population III stars by observing the imprints they leave in the cosmic microwave background.
Physicists found that dark matter halos will eventually collapse into black holes as they leak energy through to gravitational waves.
Introduction Before talking about dark energy, we need to talk about gravitational waves. In his theory of General Relativity, Albert Einstein predicted the existence of gravitational waves. Since then, astronomers have recognized the usefulness it provides for humanity to understand the universe in new ways. Much like what radio astronomy did in the 1930s. With […]
