Galloping galaxies – Pt II

November2

The universe doesn’t look right. It suddenly looks . . . out of whack. The universe is unimaginably big, and it keeps getting bigger. But astronomers cannot agree on how quickly it is growing – and the more they study the problem, the more they disagree. Some scientists call this a “crisis” in cosmology. A […]

Math Prof wakes early to view black hole image

April11

Astronomers have captured the first image of a black hole, proving the University of Canterbury’s distinguished Professor Roy Kerr’s 56-year-old theory correct. Kerr said he set his alarm for 1am to see this exciting event. “The event horizon telescope photo is just the beginning of a new phase in the understanding of our universe. “The […]

The Size of Space is Remarkable!

January3

Ultima Thule is more than a billion miles on the far side of Pluto. This snowman-like space rock is approximately twenty miles long by ten miles wide and seems to spin like a propeller through space. Why? It is two objects fused together in a strange motion. The object was discovered by the Hubble Space Telescope […]

Racing at 2 million kms/hr!

February11

Hundreds of galaxies hiding on the other side of the Milky Way have been discovered by an international team of scientists. They were able to see through the stars and dust of the Milky Way, into a previously unexplored region of space using the Parkes radio telescope in New South Wales, Australia. Despite being just […]

Flat out in 3 or 4 Dimensions…

August23

How many dimensions are there in our universe? From 2009 (http://phys.org/news/2009-02-fourth-dimension.html): “Creating a unified theory of quantum gravitation is often considered to be the “Holy Grail” of modern science. Daniel Grumiller (left) from the Institute of Theoretical Physics, Vienna University of Technology, Austria, can now at least unravel some of the mysteries of quantum gravitation. […]

Calculus – the language of the stars!

June9

“Mathematics is the language of the stars! It was Sir Isaac Newton who worked out a way to mathematically calculate the changing motion of the planets, etc. Sir Isaac Newton, when pondering the motions of Halley’s Comet, came to the realization that the math that had been used thus far to describe physical motion of […]

More space discovered in Space

April23

Yahoo News reports that “Astronomers say they have discovered a “supervoid” in the universe that is 1.8 billion light years in width. Dr Istvan Szapudi, who led a team of researchers from the University of Hawaii, has labeled it “the largest individual structure ever identified by humanity”. The vast, large space, which is “missing” around […]

Black Holes – Mathematically Impossible?

September29

“Black Holes — the most dense objects in the universe that do not even let light escape — do not exist, a physics professor in the US has claimed. Laura Mersini-Houghton at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in the College of Arts and Sciences, has proven, mathematically, that black holes can never come into being […]

Time and Space – Hubble exposes deep space

September27

A stunning new composite photograph from the Hubble Space Telescope, made up of more than 2,000 images shot by multiple cameras over the past 10 years and combined in what amounts to a 23-day time exposure, shows some 5,500 galaxies in tiny field of view, including some dating back to just 450 million years after […]

Do we live in the 11th dimension?

February16

Perhaps! As we consider the number of dimensions that exist we need to explore the properties outside our normal spacetime experience and look at the structure of the universe. In fact, Astronomy and Mathematics are close cousins. Click on the magazine to find out one suggested answer to the question in this post.
