Since dark matter eludes detection, the mission will target sources of light that are sensitive to it.
It's not only the gravity from galaxies in a cluster that reveal dark matter, but the ejected, intracluster stars actually trace it out.
Virtually all the statistical methods researchers commonly use assume potential mating partners decide who they will have children with based on a roll of the dice.
The great hope is that beyond the indirect, astrophysical evidence we have today, we'll someday detect it directly. But what if we can't?
We cannot afford to dream about living on other worlds while we continue to destroy ours.
Futurist Ari Wallach shares how to become future-conscious.
About 8% of our genome is made of leftover viruses from our ancestors' infections.
Practically all of the matter we see and interact with is made of atoms, which are mostly empty space. Then why is reality so... solid?
Einstein’s theory of general relativity passes another test, with implications for dark matter and dark energy
The theory is accurate within at least one part in a quadrillion.
If you want a medication to kick in faster, lean right.
The key problem with the dark matter hypothesis is that nobody knows what form dark matter might take.
Research shows how temperature can be used to manipulate circadian rhythms.
There's an extra source of massive "stuff" in our Universe beyond what gravitation and normal matter can explain. Could light be the answer?
Reframing life in terms of death reveals some of the biggest philosophical problems with how we think about living systems.
Dark matter has never been directly detected, but the astronomical evidence for its existence is overwhelming. Here's what to know.
Searching for dark matter, the XENON collaboration found absolutely nothing out of the ordinary. Here's why that's an extraordinary feat.
Scientists have found three new examples of a very exotic form of matter made of quarks. They can yield insights into the early Universe.
It's not about leaves in tall trees.
Over time, the Universe becomes less dominated by dark matter and more dominated by dark energy. Is one transforming into the other?
Everything is made of matter, not antimatter, including black holes. If antimatter black holes existed, what would they do?
It doesn't matter how ridiculous a lie is. As long as it is repeated often enough, some people will believe it.
At very high and very low temperatures, matter takes on properties that open up an entire Universe of remarkable new possibilities.
Our Universe requires dark matter in order to make sense of things, astrophysically. Could massive photons do the trick?
Even though the brain is only 2% of our total body mass, it consumes up to 25% of our energy.
If dark matter exists in a large halo in our galaxy, made up of particles, then it's passing through us constantly. But how much?
Out of all the galaxies we know, only a few little ones are missing dark matter. At last, we finally understand why.
Setting resolutions for the new year means you think the future is up to you — but is it?
Harnessing the power of emotional intelligence in the workplace can improve both employee and operational performance.
A few years ago, the first dark matter-free galaxies were announced, and then immediately disputed. Now, there are too many to ignore.
