Planet Hunters

We find new planets by looking at how the brightness of a star changes over time As the planet passes in front of the star we see a dip in the light from it. Depending on how far the planet is from the star, you may see one or many dips in the lightcurve Can you spot the transits?

The Daily Galaxy - Great Discoveries Channel -Your Daily Dose of Awe: Science, Space, Tech The Daily Galaxy - Great Discoveries Channel -Your Daily Dose of Awe: Science, Space, Tech Physicists believe that so-called techni-quarks can be the yet unseen particles, smaller than the Higgs particle that will form a natural exention of the Standard Model which includes three generations of quarks and leptons. These particles together with the fundamental forces form the basis of the observed matter in the universe. Continue reading ""Beyond the Higgs Boson" --Searching for the Existence of Unseen Particles " » Scientists have theorized that gravitational waves point to the possibility of multipe universes. Gravitational waves have infused space with a special energy that exerts a repulsive force, causing the universe to expand faster than the speed of light for a prodigiously violent instant. The ballooning process smoothed out out he wrinkles and irregularities, solving the paradox of why the heavens look uniform from pole to pole.
