Space Mysteries: If we can find the answer, it may complete our understanding of space and time.
In their paper published in Frontiers of Physics, Franco Vazza (astrophysicist at the University of Bologna) and Alberto Feletti (neurosurgeon at the University of Verona) investigated the similarities between two of the most challenging and complex systems in nature: the cosmic network of galaxies and the network of neuronal cells in the human brain.
The universe is getting hotter, a new study has found.

On a fine scale, the Universe seems lumpier than it should be.
This is the result of a 20-year collaboration of several hundred scientists from around 30 different institutions around the world.
Just how old is the universe? Astrophysicists have been debating this question for decades. In recent years, new scientific measurements have suggested the universe may be hundreds of millions of years younger than its previously estimated age of approximately 13.8 billions of years.
