LIGO just found gravitational waves ... again. The real excitement is what happens next.

6 reasons why scientists are so excited about gravitational waves

An illustration of a newly detected black-hole merger, whose gravitational-wave signal suggests that at least one of the black holes was misaligned with its orbital motion before merging with its partner.


Quantum Equation Suggests The Big Bang Never Occurred – The Universe Has No Beginning - they repeatedly ask, "Who is "that" guy" [who first caused space to expand], Really? Scientists can be such brilliant dunces sometimes.

n the heart of an active galaxy, matter falling toward a supermassive black hole creates jets of particles traveling near the speed of light. For active galaxies classified as blazars, one of these jets beams almost directly toward Earth.

NASA’s recently launched Solar Dynamics Observatory, or SDO, is returning early images that confirm an unprecedented new capability for scientists to better understand our sun's dynamic processes.

A full-disk multiwavelength extreme ultraviolet image of the sun taken by SDO on March False colors trace different gas temperatures. Reds are relatively cool (about Kelvin, or F); blues and greens are hotter (greater than 1 million Kelvin, or F).

To celebrate Voyager's accomplishments and enduring legacy, we've charted some of the spacecraft's biggest moments.

Mapping Voyager 1's Incredible 36-Year Mission Through Space [INFOGRAPHIC]

Voyager 1 spacecraft's biggest moments are shown in this chart covering the last 36 years. Voyager 1 is almost 12 billion miles away now! and moving at miles per hour!Voyager 1 will be the first ever object we've sent outside our solar system.

We May Finally Understand the Speed of Gravity. / Solving the enduring mystery of the speed of gravity will have broad implications for fundamental physics and our understanding of the cosmos.

New research that cites quantum "flashes" as the cause of gravitational fields could potentially help reconcile two competing theories.
