Hi I’m Kayla, and this is my best friend Boots! With new CMB experiments coming online in the next decade, come along with me to find out what some astronomers are hoping to discover!
In our latest #UndergradResearch post, Sahil Ugale investigates the rate of expansion of the universe, and specifically the Hubble Constant Tension.
The distribution of galaxies clusters (BAOs) are a beloved tool for cosmological analysis. But what about cosmic voids? Stare into the void, and you might just learn something new!
The presence of dark matter particles in barred spiral galaxies should slow down their galactic bars. However, this is not what we observe. Are galactic bars telling us to reconsider the foundations of the standard model?
Type Ia supernovae’s dimmer cousin, type II supernovae, take a shot at measuring the Hubble constant.
Tensions are rising with the beloved lambda-CDM model of the Universe. Is it time for Early Dark Energy to swoop in to save the day?
