Earth And Its Parent Galaxy Live In A Cosmic Void

According to a study, we live in a cosmic void, which is a region of space largely devoid of other galaxies, stars, and planets. If our universe were a sponge, the milky way would dwell in one of the spongy holes. These cosmic voids are part of the large-scale structure of the universe. Once scientists thought that Earth was...

What is Dark Energy?

Dark energy is an unknown form of energy which is hypothesized to permeate all of the space. It tends to accelerate the expansion of the universe. So, we basically don’t really know what is it. In 1929, American astronomer Edwin Hubble studied exploding stars known as supernovae to determine that the universe is...
