'Something weird' is going on with our universe: NASA's Hubble Space Telescope detects changes in the rate of expansion that cannot be explained by current physics
🙄😆🤣 New research from the Hubble Space Telescope has shown there is a huge discrepancy between the universe's current rate of expansion compared to observations from right after the Big Bang. The iconic orbital observatory has just completed a 30-year marathon of data collection. With this information, Hubble was then able to identify more than 40 'milepost markers' of space and time to help scientists more accurately measure the expansion rate of the universe. However, the more precise these measures become the more they indicate that 'something weird' is happening, the US space agency said.

The Sun as you've never seen it before: Incredible new Solar Orbiter images show a curious patch of 'spikes' stretching 15,000 miles across the sun dubbed the HEDGEHOG
🙄😆🤣 The UK-built spacecraft's closest approach to the Sun, known as perihelion, took place on March 26 (top right), taking it inside the orbit of Mercury, at about one-third the distance from the Sun to the Earth. It captured a series of 'breathtaking' pictures, including views across the solar poles (bottom right) and of several solar flares, providing a taste of real-time space weather forecasting. This is becoming increasingly important because of the threat space weather poses to technology and astronauts. Another eye-catching feature the Solar Orbiter (inset) snapped was nicknamed 'the hedgehog' because of its multitude of spikes of hot and colder gas that reach out in all directions (left).
