Beyond the Edge of the Milky Way: Giant Pulsating Stars Revealed an Enormous Halo of Dark Matter

Galaxy NGC 474

 

One early result of the 2nd release of the still ongoing Dark Energy Survey is the previously untold story revealed by old, giant RR Lyrae (RRL) pulsating stars with a mass of around half the sun’s, which tell scientists about the region of space beyond the edge of our Milky Way. These large-amplitude stars serve as tracers and distance indicators of old stellar populations in the Milky Way and neighboring galaxies. They are also essential laboratories for testing evolutionary and pulsation models.

Dark Energy May Not Be the Cosmological Constant as Theorized by Einstein

Dark Energy

 

In 1917, Albert Einstein originally included a cosmological constant in his field equations of general relativity in order to achieve a steady-state static Universe. Shortly after Edwin Hubble’s discovery of the expanding Universe in 1929, Einstein removed the cosmological constant, calling it the “greatest blunder of my life”. In the late 1990s, astronomers measured the distances to extremely distant exploding supernovae and discovered that the Universe is actually accelerating (not just expanding), and therefore reintroduced the extra dark energy vacuum term in the cosmological equations.
