Universe May Have Lost 'Unstable' Dark Matter. The early universe may have contained more dark matter than there is today, new research suggests. The findings could help scientists better understand what the universe was like just after the Big Bang.

Dark Matter Just Got Murkier

A non-discovery is causing physicists to rethink how they think about dark matter, the mysterious "stuff" that pervades the universe.

Dark Matter Recipe Calls for One Part Superfluid

A different kind of dark matter could help to resolve an old celestial conundrum.

Black Holes Dark matter comprises up to five-sixths of the total matter in the universe, binding much of it together. Despite its commonality, the physical nature of dark matter, as of remains elusive, with its dramatic effects only indirectly seen.

A Fifth Force: Fact or Fiction?

Some physicists claim a new force of nature might have been discovered. If true, that would mean that we have to rewrite the textbooks.

Recently astronomers have used a cosmic web imager to visualize simulations of dark matter, showing how the large scale structure of the universe grows and the nests in which galaxies are hatched.

An Astrophysicist Says We Might Not Be Able to Distinguish Aliens From The Laws of Physics

An astrophysicist has put forward an interesting thought experiment this week: what if a civilisation of extraterrestrial life was advanced enough, it's possible that we might confuse its presence with the laws of physics.

Dark Matter Still a Mystery: Most Sensitive Search Yet Comes Up Empty

The incredibly sensitive LUX dark matter detector, buried under a mile of rock, has come up empty on its 20-month search for dark matter — further narrowing down the possible characteristics of the strange substance.

New Hypothesis Suggests That Dark Matter May Be Made up of Primordial Black Holes

With the detection of gravitational waves by LIGO, scientists have been able to hypothesize that dark matter may be composed of primordial black holes. More observation is needed to confirm, but this could represent an exciting new chapter in the history of the universe.
