Did our Universe come into being by chance or was it created by a God? The latest science shows that the four forces governing our universe are finely tuned, so much so that it has led many to believe that something must have calibrated them.
They are the most powerful objects in the universe. Astronomers now think there are billions of them, swallowing planets and stars in violent feeding frenzies, and that reality may take place on a two-dimensional hologram at the edge of the universe.
Einstein's Theory of Relativity says time travel is possible if you're going forward in time. But finding a way to travel backwards requires breaking the speed of light. Now strange-but-true phenomena like quantum nonlocality may make this a reality.
Cosmologists and astronomers agree: our Universe is 13.7 billion years old. Using cutting-edge technology, scientists are able to take a snapshot of the Universe a mere heartbeat after its birth. But if the Universe was born, where did it come from?
Everywhere we look on Earth, in the most hospitable environments and in the most extreme, we find life. Yet we have only ever found life on our planet. How did the stuff of stars come together to create life as we know it? What do we mean by 'life'?
Aliens almost certainly do exist. So why haven't we yet met E.T.? We're only just developing instruments powerful enough to scan for them. One leading astronomer believes she may already have heard a hint of their first efforts to communicate.
Our understanding of the universe and reality has drastically changed over the last 100 years. It's on the verge of another seismic shift based on LHC findings. What we find could validate theories about how the world works and what we are made of.
What is the universe made of? If you answered stars, planets, gas and dust, you're wrong. Scientists think there must be five times as much dark matter as regular matter, but they have no idea what it is only that it's not made of atoms we know of.

Could spaceships be powered by atomic bombs? Can artificial rings encircle an entire star? why was Neil Armstrong’s transmission feed cut off when he spotted strange lights on the Moon? And how can lightning talk to itself?
What could make a NASA astronaut report seeing a flying saucer in the skies above a US Air Force test range? How have the swirling gases of Saturn formed a perfect Hexagon that has hovered above the planet’s pole for 30 years?
