The Oldest Star in the Universe? --"Closest to the Big Bang in Composition" A primordial star at the outer edges of our Milky Way galaxy upsets current theories of star formation in the universe. The star simply shouldn't exist since it lacks the materials astronomers have long thought necessary for low-mass stars to form, scientists say.

Astronomers Zooming In on Alien "Earth-Sized" Planet System A new observatory still under construction has given astronomers a major breakthrough in understanding a nearby planetary system that can provide valuable clues about how such systems form and evolve. The scientists used the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) to discover that planets orbiting the star Fomalhaut must be much smaller than originally thought.

In August of 2007, astronomers located a gigantic hole in the universe. This empty space, stretching nearly a billion light-years across, is devoid of any matter such as galaxies, stars, and gas, and neither does it contain the strange and mysterious dark matter, which can be detected but not seen. The large void in the Constellation Eridanus appears to be improbable given current cosmological models. A radical and controversial theory proposes that it is a "universe-in-mass black hole"

Monster Black Holes of the Early Universe --"Did They Form Inside Galaxies or Create Them?"

The Rho Ophiuchi Nebula: A Clue to Origin of Earth's Key Molecules? Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) a key molecule for both astronomers and chemists has been discovered close to the star Rho Ophiuchi, about 400 light-years away.

Astronomers are edging closer to discovering how the universe’s most massive black holes form

Most Massive Known Galaxies Observed at Edge of the Universe: Four previously unknown galaxy clusters each potentially containing thousands of individual galaxies have been discovered some 10 billion light years from Earth. Most clusters in the universe today are dominated by giant elliptical galaxies in which the dust and gas has already been formed into stars.

Unsolved Mystery of Molecules Found in Andromeda & Triangulum Galaxies In the summer of 2011, a team of NASA and European scientists recorded the "fingerprints" of mystery molecules in two distant galaxies, Andromeda and the Triangulum (image above).

Universe from edge to edge. In this beautiful video, you will make an incredible journey through the vast universe. You will travel in both time and space: from the time of formation of the universe and the most distant of its borders, where you can see her whole being away from her. The film expands the consciousness, that is so lacking modern people, mired in the minutiae of life. You will make a great flights in outer Space, see how galaxies are formed, and will witness the beautiful…

'Alien life' found on the edge of space provides evidence that biologi

Scientists claim to have found evidence of ALIEN LIFE: Balloon sent to edge of atmosphere picks up organisms ‘that can only have come from space’ Scientists found algae after sending a balloon into the stratosphere Claim the algae could only have come from space or a volcanic eruption This could provide evidence that the 'seeds of life' exist all over the Universe and travel from one planet to another via meteors

...the earth in not travelling through an insubstantial ether; it is a deformation, a pattern, of the universal material substrate, of the same nature as the light which also is a patterning in the universal material substrate. ~ David Bohm
