Improved Hubble Yardstick Gives Fresh Evidence for New Physics in the Universe

Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI)

Astronomers using the Hubble Space Telescope have made the most precise measurement to date of the rate at which the universe is expanding the big bang. This may mean that there's something unknown about the makeup of the universe. The new numbers remain at odds with independent measurements of the early universe's expansion.

Hunting for Neutrinos: When the Ordinary Is Unexpected

Department of Energy, Office of Science

Neutrinos are the most abundant particles in the universe and could reveal insight into physics beyond the Standard Model. However, they’re incredibly difficult to detect. While most neutrino detectors are very large, two experiments supported by the Department of Energy at Oak Ridge National Laboratory are poised to demonstrate that even modest neutrino experiments can make big discoveries.

Hubble Sees Neptune's Mysterious Shrinking Storm

Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI)

Three billion miles away on the farthest known major planet in our solar system, an ominous, dark storm is shrinking out of existence as seen in pictures of Neptune taken by the Hubble Space Telescope. Immense dark storms on Neptune were first discovered in the late 1980s by the Voyager 2 spacecraft. Since then, only Hubble has tracked these elusive features that play a game of peek-a-boo over the years.

45-Year-Old Telescope Gets a Makeover to Demystify Dark Energy

SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory

Forty-five years ago this month, a telescope tucked inside a 14-story, 500-ton dome atop a mile-high peak in Arizona took in the night sky for the first time and recorded its observations on glass photographic plates. Today, the dome closes on the previous science chapters of the 4-meter Nicholas U. Mayall Telescope and starts preparing for its new role in creating the largest 3-D map of the universe. This map could help determine why the universe is expanding at faster and faster rates, driven by an unknown force called dark energy.

Solving the Dark Energy Mystery: A New Assignment for a 45-Year-Old Telescope

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

Today, the dome closes on the previous science chapters of the 4-meter Mayall Telescope in Arizona so that it can prepare for its new role in creating the largest 3-D map of the universe. This map could help to solve the mystery of dark energy, which is driving the accelerating expansion of the universe.

Narrowing in on the W Boson Mass

Brookhaven National Laboratory

Scientists working on the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC)—the world’s largest particle collider, hosted at CERN, the European particle physics laboratory—have precisely measured the mass of the W boson, a particle that plays a weighty role in a delicate balancing act of the quantum universe.
