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/

Fastest-growing black hole in the universe eats the equivalent of one sun per day

Astronomers have come across a monstrously large black hole with a gargantuan appetite. Each passing day, the insatiable void known as J2157 consumes gas and dust equivalent in mass to the sun, making it the fastest-growing black hole in the universe. The sheer scale of J2157 is almost unfathomable, but we can try pinning some […]

There may be more than 36 intelligent alien civilizations in the Milky Way, scientists say – CBS News

Humans have long suspected that we are not alone in the universe, and now scientists have said there may be dozens of alien civilizations lurking not too far from Earth. Some of them may even be advanced enough to communicate with us. According to a new study in The Astrophysical Journal, scientists at the University of Nottingham estimate […]

“Bizarre” –Strange Objects Detected Near Milky Way’s Supermassive Black Hole | The Daily Galaxy

“These objects look like gas and behave like stars,” said co-author Andrea Ghez, UCLA’s Lauren B. Leichtman and Arthur E. Levine Professor of Astrophysics and director of the UCLA Galactic Center Group about a new class of bizarre objects with orbits ranging from about 100 to 1,000 years at the center of our galaxy, not far […]

Astronomers have found the edge of the Milky Way at last | Science News

Our galaxy is a whole lot bigger than it looks. New work finds that the Milky Way stretches nearly 2 million light-years across, more than 15 times wider than its luminous spiral disk. The number could lead to a better estimate of how massive the galaxy is and how many other galaxies orbit it… https://www.sciencenews.org/article/astronomers-have-found-edge-milky-way-size
