An international research team came up with a new shocking theory about the possible future of the universe suggesting that the mysterious dark energy "swallows" the not less mysterious dark matter. According to the study authors, in case their theory is right, we will “end up with a big, empty and boring Universe with almost [...]

There Could Be Half as Much Dark Matter in the Milky Way as Previously Thought

Dark matter has never been easy to understand, neither has it been a piece of cake to measure. According to recently attained measurements, however, it seems that there is only half the amount of dark matter in the Milky Way than what we previously thought. If you have no idea what dark matter is, don’t [...]

Scientists Create an Amazingly Accurate Model of the Evolution of the Universe

The mysterious dark matter that fills the entire universe could make devastating asteroids and comets fall onto the Earth, causing mass extinctions, including the one of mankind. Americans physicists claim to have found evidence for the correctness of this theory in craters on the surface of the Earth. Lisa Randall and Matthew Reece from the [...]

Gamma-Rays in the Center of Our Galaxy May Have Exposed Dark Matter

By |2017-11-26T17:21:15+00:00April 4th, 2014|Categories: Physics & Natural Sciences, Uncommon Science, Universe|Tags: , , , |

New data from the NASA’s Fermi Space Telescope show that the center of our galaxy produces far greater amounts of high gamma ray energy, the origin of which can probably be explained by recourse to the mysterious dark matter. A team of scientists led by astrophysicist Dan Hooper of the U.S. Fermi National Laboratory (Fermilab) [...]

CERN Scientists Will Try to Prove the Antigravity Theory

By |2017-01-13T21:53:08+00:00December 2nd, 2013|Categories: Physics & Natural Sciences, Uncommon Science|Tags: , , |

Having confirmed in practice the existence of the Higgs boson, experts at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) proceeded to check the theory of the existence of antigravity. This was reported by the British media. According to the theory, antimatter generates its own gravitational field, which, in contrast to the known gravitational forces of [...]
