Mapping historical changes in dark matter  PHYS.ORG · 1 week
Combining Einstein's theory of relativity with one of the most powerful telescopes in the world has helped an international team of researchers measure where and how dark matter structures grow in the universe. Their analysis suggests... more
Discovering new particles using black holes  PHYS.ORG · 2 weeks
Some theories that go beyond the Standard Model of particle physics predict the existence of new ultralight particles, with masses much below the lightest known particles in nature. When these particles have very weak interactions with... more
