Finally, This is What happened before the Big Bang

Let’s face it: to think that the universe has a history that started with a kind of birthday some 13.8 billion years ago is weird. It resonates with many religious narratives that posit that the cosmos was created by divine intervention, although science has nothing to say about that.

The Big Bang May Have Created A ‘Mirror Universe’, Where Time Runs Backwards

In November 2018, three physicists from the prestigious Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics, in Waterloo, Canada, proposed an extraordinary idea: from the Big Bang not only the Universe we know but also another one that is 'its image in the mirror' arose. 

Behold! You Are Looking At The First Direct Image Of Another “Solar System”

Scientists have taken the first direct picture of a solar system that is strikingly similar to our own. The new image shows two huge exoplanets orbiting a young, sun-like star about 300 light-years away. It looks more like a family portrait.

‘Giant arc’ stretching 3.3 billion light-years across the cosmos shouldn’t exist

A newly discovered crescent of galaxies spanning 3.3 billion light-years is one of the world’s largest known structures, challenging some of astronomers’ most fundamental assumptions about the universe.

Two ‘super-Earth’ planets in Goldilocks zone have been discovered, one of which could potentially support life

TWO Earth-like planets have been discovered in outer space, one of which may have the required circumstances for life to evolve.

New Estimates Suggest There Are Around 300 Million Habitable Planets in Our Galaxy

According to new research based on data from the Kepler space observatory, there could be up to 300 million potentially habitable planets in our galaxy. The nice news about the new estimations is that they could be very close to Earth; none of these possibly habitable exoplanets are more than 30 light-years away.

‘Groundbreaking’ Sharp Images of Distant Planetary System Show 3 Planets Are Missing

Using the combined might of two of Hawaii's powerful telescopes, astronomers have captured what they are describing as "groundbreaking" sharp new images of a planetary system still in the process of being born.
