2 Steps Closer to the Search for Dark Matter and Dark Energy

Scientists have been trying to track down the ingredients of dark matter and dark energy for a long time. The search has now taken a leap forward thanks to two new laboratory experiments.

The dark side of the universe

Indirect detection experiments might be the key to discovering invisible dark matter.

The Coma Cluster of dead galaxies 300 million light-years from Earth appears to hold more than 100 times more dark matter than visible matter, scientists say.

Dark matter living in galaxy clusters doesn't splatter when the galaxies collide, according to new research. The finding suggests dark matter particles, whatever they are, are not part of a "dark sector" that mirrors our own universe.

Dwarf Galaxies Formed More Than Their Fair Share Of The Universe’s Stars  Hiding among these thousands of galaxies are faint dwarf galaxies residing in the early universe, between 2 and 6 billion years after the big bang, an important time period when most of the stars in the universe were formed. Some of these galaxies are undergoing starbursts.

They may be little, but they pack a big star-forming punch. New observations from NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope show small galaxies, also known as dwarf galaxies, are responsible for forming a large proportion of the universe’s stars. Hiding among.
