New studies of satellite galaxies in Centaurus A show results that challenge our current understanding of almost 27 per cent of the universe
This study revealed that unusual X-ray results of galaxy clusters could be explained by dark matter
We discover that dark matter may not be as real as it seems in the latest issue of All About Space, available now from all good supermarkets and newsagents
An international team of cosmologists have used data from the intergalactic medium – the vast, largely empty space between galaxies – to narrow down what dark matter could be
Three detector systems for the Euclid mission, led by the European Space Agency, have been delivered to Europe for the spacecraft’s near-infrared instrument
The study, which involves 13 galaxy clusters, explores the possibility that mysterious substance may be more ‘fuzzy’ than ‘cold’
The discovery of two massive holes in a stream of stars could help answer questions about the nature of the elusive material
Using the world’s most powerful telescopes, a massive galaxy that consists almost entirely of the mysterious material has been found
If true, the revolutionary finding could be key in understanding dark matter
Using six or more years of data from NASA’s Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope, the search for the elusive material has been broadened with some novel approaches
Astronomers have obtained the most precise measurement yet of how fast the universe is expanding at the present time
‘Cosmic gaps’ could contain as much as 20 per cent of the ‘normal’ matter in the universe
After years of preparatory studies, the space agency is formally starting an astrophysics mission designed to help unlock the secrets of the universe
With their billions of stars, why don’t these giant structures light up the entirety of space?
The Solar System might be a lot hairier than we thought…
We shed new light on the mysterious dark matter in the latest issue of All About Space – out now!
We find out why galaxies are orientated this way
We find out if this material is harbouring a reflection of the cosmos
We take a look at what would happen if we were able to somehow touch the elusive 25 per cent of the universe
Why the Milky Way has so few satellite galaxies could be all down to the elusive dark matter, say European astronomers.
