  • NASA Annoucement

    NASA Annoucement
    NASA makes annoncement that the Cosmic Background Explorer loked billions of light years into space and detected minute tempurature fluctuations. These discoveries led to eliminating one of the flaws in the big bang theory.

  • Universe expansion speed

    Universe expansion speed
    SInce gravity pulls all matter inward toward the universes starting point, scientists always thought universal expansion got slower over time. In 1998, sceintists proved that the rate of expansion was actually larger than at is start.
