Have You Asked Yourself Exactly What Is Gravity?

We know that something attracts us down to the Earth’s core and we call that gravity. But exactly what is gravity and what does it do? We do not know what exactly gravity is.

Hubble Discovers A Dead Galaxy That Was Wasted A Long Time Ago

This new, discovered dead galaxy stopped making new stars just a few billion years after the big bang. This Dead galaxy was not so easy to be found. That’s because objects in the distant universe appear small and difficult to see. So, astronomers need to see them through a cosmic magnifying glass. Using the Hubble Space...

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...
