For the first time, dark galaxies — an early phase of galaxy formation, predicted by theory but unobserved until now — may have been spotted.


Combining data from the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope and observations with optical telescopes, a KIPAC scientist has discovered the most extreme 'black widow' pulsar yet.


Astronomers find evidence the universe is filled with a giant web-like structure of dark matter, arrayed in vast filaments between the galaxies.


Astronomers have found a puzzling arc of light behind an extremely massive cluster of galaxies residing 10 billion light-years away.


Researchers create ultra slippery anti-ice and anti-frost surfaces. The technology prevents ice sheets from developing on surfaces—and any ice that does form, slides off effortlessly.


Commonality can be used to predict or even design new materials that exhibit exreme behaviors.


Seven pioneering scientists have been named this year’s recipients of the Kavli Prizes – prizes that recognize scientists for their seminal advances in astrophysics, nanoscience and neuroscience, and include a cash award of one million dollars in each field.


The "stitching" between crystals of graphene affects how well these carbon monolayers conduct electricity and retain their strength.


The Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation has awarded KITP $1.6 million for its ongoing interdisciplinary biology initiatives.


Taking an engineer's approach to making synthetic blood vessels could lead to new techniques in regenerative medicine and better drug delivery strategies.
