A US and French science team has provided laboratory evidence that supports a theory, from the 1970s, that helium raindrops fall inside of gas-giants Jupiter and Saturn.
An international team of researchers has produced a map of the dark matter within the local universe, using a model to infer its location due to its gravitational influence on galaxies (black dots). These density maps--each a cross section in different dimensions--reproduce known, prominent features of the universe (red) and also reveal smaller filamentary features (yellow) that act as hidden bridges between galaxies. The X denotes the Milky Way galaxy and arrows denote the motion of the local universe due

Scientists are finding evidence that elements of the universe, like galaxies, are interconnected with each other in a cosmic web, by filaments made mostly of dark matter and gas. A team of scientists recently used Machine Learning to create a map of dark matter in our local or observable universe. The science team says that along with dark matter their new map also shows several undiscovered ‘galaxy connecting filaments’ of the cosmic web.

After analyzing data obtained with the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA), a team of Japanese astronomers has discovered the oldest spiral galaxy to be observed. The galaxy was observed as it existed 12.4 billion years ago, or 1.4 billion years after the Big Bang, while it was in an early stage of formation.
