Welcome to Half-Life Answers. What would you like to know?

Valve didn't ever mention scientific details in their scripts, so they don't need any research more complex than watching Discovery channel's shows about wormholes and space.

As for your example, Dark Energy is not so much a scientific element as a science fiction one, so there wasn't really much researching for that one.
