If not dark energy, what's making the universe expand?

"Russian Doll" Galaxy Clusters Reveal Information About Dark Energy

Astronomers have used data from NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory, ESA’s Planck and a large list of optical telescopes to develop a powerful new method for investigating dark energy, the mysterious energy that is currently driving the accelerating expansion of the universe.

The technique takes advantage of the observation that the outer reaches of galaxy clusters, the largest structures in the universe held together by gravity, show similarity in their X-ray emission profiles and sizes. More massive clusters are simply scaled up versions of less massive ones.

In the news..

Donald Trump Will be Called to Testify in Trial About His 'University'

The New York attorney general suggests that Donald Trump may be taking the stand soon in a court case about the now-defunct Trump University.

The news follows a New York court decision that the lawsuit filed by the attorney general against the former for-profit institution will proceed to trial, after a settlement could not be reached.

WHO Warns of "Marked Increase" in Virus in Europe This Summer

Warming weather throughout Europe could mean the Zika virus will spread at a greater rate, a World Health Organization official said this week.
Dr. Marie-Paule Kieny, an assistant director-general for health systems and innovation at the WHO, addressed the possibility of an expanding range for the mosquitoes that spread the Zika virus.

With mosquito season arriving in Europe, "the possibility of local transmission combined with the likelihood of onward sexual transmission could see a marked increase in the number of people with Zika and related complications," she said, according to Agence France-Presse.

"As seasonal temperatures begin to rise in Europe, two species of Aedes mosquito, which we know transmit the virus, will begin to circulate," Kieny said, according to the AFP.

Currently, 42 countries are experiencing a first outbreak of Zika virus since 2015, with no previous evidence of circulation and ongoing transmission by mosquitoes, according to a WHO situation report last week.

Three European countries -- France, Italy and Portugal -- are among the eight countries that have reported person-to-person transmission of the virus via sexual contact.

Hubble Discovers Moon Orbiting the Dwarf Planet Makemake

Peering to the outskirts of our solar system, NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope has spotted a small, dark moon orbiting Makemake, the second brightest icy dwarf planet — after Pluto — in the Kuiper Belt.

The moon — provisionally designated S/2015 (136472) 1 and nicknamed MK 2 — is more than 1,300 times fainter than Makemake. MK 2 was seen approximately 13,000 miles from the dwarf planet, and its diameter is estimated to be 100 miles across. Makemake is 870 miles wide. The dwarf planet, discovered in 2005, is named for a creation deity of the Rapa Nui people of Easter Island.

On Saturday night, Bruce & The E Street Band opened the first of two nights at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center with “Purple Rain” in tribute to Prince.

To celebrate his music and legacy, download a free MP3 of the live audio track from that performance now at: http://live.brucespringsteen.net/


Darn about the link. :(

A clip of Bruce Springsteen, playing "Purple Rain", sucked on CNN.
Only Prince can do Prince. :-)
