What Was The Universe Like Before The Big Bang? – SciTechDaily

A team of scientists has proposed a powerful new test for inflation, the theory that the universe dramatically expanded in size in a fleeting fraction of a second right before the Big Bang. Their goal is to give insight into a long-standing question: what was the universe like before the Big Bang? https://scitechdaily.com/what-was-the-universe-like-before-the-big-bang/

Alien life is out there, but our theories are not helping us find it

If we discovered evidence of alien life, would we even realise it? Life on other planets could be so different from what we’re used to that we might not recognise any biological signatures that it produces… More about this in the link below… https://theprint.in/science/alien-life-is-out-there-but-our-theories-are-not-helping-us-find-it/344284/

Alien life is out there, but our theories are probably steering us away from it

If we discovered evidence of alien life, would we even realise it? Life on other planets could be so different from what we’re used to that we might not recognise any biological signatures that it produces. Recent years have seen changes to our theories about what counts as a biosignature and which planets might be habitable, and further turnarounds are […]

Experiment confirms 50-year-old theory describing how an alien civilization could exploit a black hole

A 50-year-old theory that began as speculation about how an alien civilization could use a black hole to generate energy has been experimentally verified for the first time in a Glasgow research lab…More about this article in link below… https://phys.org/news/2020-06-year-old-theory-alien-civilization-exploit.html

Astronomers have finally measured the distance of first observed Einstein ring – Ars Technica

Astronomers around the world may have lost access to their telescopes during the coronavirus pandemic, sheltering in place along with the rest of us, but that hasn’t kept them from advancing their field. Two astronomers used the shutdown to comb through existing datasets to hunt for a rare type of quasar and wound up rediscovering […]
