Supernovas pale in comparison to quasars, which are astonishingly massive radiation powerhouses in distant space capable of emitting thousands of times the energy output of our galaxy, explains Paul Sutter, community outreach coordinator at the Center for Cosmology and Astro-Particle Physics.
The universe is expanding at an accelerating rate and so is our knowledge of it, thanks to large-scale cosmic surveys like the Dark Energy Survey, which the Center for Cosmology and AstroParticle Physics has played a key role in. The results are unraveling secrets about our galaxy's past.
Beneath the cloud tops of Jupiter exist conditions so bizarre that scientists thought they might only be found in exotic environments like white dwarfs and neutron stars, says Paul Sutter of the Department of Astronomy.
Neutrinos are popularly thought to penetrate everything owing to their extremely weak interactions with matter.
Humans have made a staggering amount of scientific and technological progress over the past century, but from the reason we sleep at night to the origins of the universe, several fundamental questions remain unanswered. Paul Sutter from the Department of Astronomy weighs in.
