This is the Final Photograph from Opportunity

   15 Mar 01:00:01   |  Universe Today

Sad. But beautiful. NASA has shared Opportunity’s final photograph from the surface of Mars.

Massive Photons Could Explain Dark Matter, But Don?t

   12 Mar 01:00:01   |  Universe Today

I?ll be the first to admit that we don?t understand dark matter. We do know for sure that something funny is going on at large scales in the universe (?large? here meaning at least as big as galaxies). In short, the numbers just aren?t adding up. For example, when we look at a galaxy and …
