Searching for dark matter with a haloscope

Scientists introduced a novel method of searching for a type of dark matter known as axions. It is a modified version of this technique may have useful "real life" applications. Most of the universe is now thought to consist of dark matter. It is a mysterious...

ATLAS and CMS collaborations chase the invisible with the Higgs boson

The Higgs boson lives for an extremely short time before it transforms into other particles. It is through the detection of some of these decay products which are the unique particle has first been spotted in particle collisions at the Large Hadron Collider. But what...

New Study sheds light on axion dark matter

Durham University and Kings College London scientists have presented a theoretical review in a new study. The study strongly supports the search for axion dark matter. The identity of dark matter makes up 85% of the matter in the universe. It is one of the...

Scientists discover how galaxies can exist without dark matter

Astrophysicists from the University of California reported that when tiny galaxies collide with bigger ones, the bigger galaxies can strip the smaller galaxies of their dark matter. These matters we can't see directly. But these matters do exist. Because without its gravitational effects they...

Astronomers discovered distant galaxies and the true nature of dark matter

At the centre of spiral galaxies there is a vast spherical region made up of dark matter particles. This region has two defining characteristics. A density that is constant out to a certain radius. It amazingly expands over time and the density decreases. This...

High fraction of dead galaxies found in ancient galactic city

University of California scientists have discovered an unusual massive cluster of young galaxies forming in the early universe. They have named the newly discovered growing galactic metropolis as MAGAZ3NE J095924+022537. It is a new born galaxy cluster or protocluster. It consists of at least...
