The Universe is expanding — gravitational waves could show us how fast

A massive breakthrough in astrophysics might enable us to finally determine the rate at which the universe expands.

Massive dark energy survey launched set to probe its secrets

Dark energy is the mysterious force that drives the Universe’s expansion at an ever increased pace. Probing and understanding this force is thus imperative for astronomers’ and cosmologists’  efforts of peering through the Universe’s secrets. Recently, a new massive project set on probing the nature of dark energy was launched, called the  Dark Energy Survey (DES), and its future findings are
