An experiment that hoped to find quantised spacetime has so far come up blank. Space is smooth according to recent experiments in the field.
Multiverses are still a bit controversial but a couple of scientists have figured out how we might detect them if they do exist.
Parallax measurements from the European Space Agency's Gaia spacecraft confirm the universe is expanding faster than astronomers thought.
Scientists look for a message from God in the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB). They didn't find one, but I did.
Physicists theorise that a pattern may exist in the distortions of the energy blips from some pulsars. Could a cosmic string be responsible?
How CP violation favours matter over antimatter, thus giving us the matter-dominated universe we see around us.
There is a cold spot in the Cosmic Microwave Background and cosmologists speculate as to why this might be.
Supermassive black holes are huge and incredibly heavy, so why doesn't their extreme gravity consume the entire galaxy?
For a long while scientists have thought the universe is flat but a recent paper suggests it's highly likely it is in fact curved.
Gravitational-wave detectors may have discovered a black hole of a mass that shouldn't really be allowed.
How cosmic distances are measured and why we need to use them to determine how fast the universe is expanding.
Musing on the picture of the M87 black hole taken by the Event Horizon telescope array in 2019.
