Universe's Most Accurate Measurements Indicate that Something is,,,,

"It certainly indicates that there is potentially something wrong with our understanding of the universe

Researchers have found that the universe is expanding at a completely different rate than previously thought

An unprecedented discovery that could undermine our current understanding of the universe

In the paper, published in The Astrophysics Journal, a team of researchers studied the light emitted from 1,550 different supernovae

In doing so, their analysis, dubbed Pantheon, includes some of the most comprehensive measurements ever made

His research suggests that the entire universe is made up of roughly two-thirds dark energy and one-third matter

New research shows that the universe is expanding at about 160,000 miles per hour

Whereas previous measurements that took into account the cosmic microwave background concluded that it was expanding much slower than that

And while Pantheon may have confirmed the discrepancy, it did not respond to it

"It certainly indicates," the researcher told Agence France-Presse, "potentially there is something wrong with our understanding of the universe
