Calm yourselves everyone. The media powers that be (and that continue to remain clueless as to what will be important in the days to come) have published yet another article showing that they are only interested in getting exposure while never stopping to think about what they are publishing.
I was just reading an article entitled: Antimatter: Next Holy Grail for Physics on the ABC News website.
This article was an absolute horrible FAIL! Two things were wrong with this article. For starters the article is eleven pages long and only briefly mentioned antimatter.
The second problem with the article was the fact that despite its title, and whether you realize it or not, antimatter is really NOT that interesting of a subject.
I was just reading an article entitled…”Revealed at last: Universe’s intergalactic dark matter skeleton” over at theregister.co.uk/.
The article was more or less playing around with some ideas as to what “forms the skeleton” of our universe.
As it stands, dark matter is slowly, but surely, gaining ground as the front runner with respect to the most important discovery of our time…
Sure articles about “Global Warming” and the “Higgs Boson” are interesting, but mark my words, nothing will affect “YOUR life” in the way that “dark matter” will…
Well, actually, the answer to that question is a bit out of the scope of some “little article” posted on a website such as this, but I can tell you this:
Dark matter is much, much older than the universe we reside in…
Dark matter contains much more information than the quantum mechanical wave functions that make up our observable universe contain.
I am going to “bust the nuts” of the scientific community here and “spill the beans” as it were as to the nature and true identity of “dark matter“.
You see, all of this news about the “discovery” of the Higgs Boson lately has really kind of overshadowed the real story…the story of dark matter.
Unbeknownst to (from what I can now see) most of the scientific community, dark matter is by far the most important element of our “multiverse”.
I use the term “multiverse” because that’s exactly what it is…a multiverse.
You think we’re alone?
You think that our little universe is all that there is?
Some “materialists” told you that you can “see” everything that is?
Not at all, my friends. Anyone who tells you that there is nothing beyond you can see is sorely mistaken…
If there’s anything that we’ve learned from CERN in Geneva, Switzerland, its that smashing atoms together with enough force to get them to actually cough up information about how they’re made is no small feat.
I mean literally, it takes a ten billion dollar scientific instrument and enough power to light up a city during the summer just to smash packets of protons together hard enough…and we have to do this trillions of times.
As interesting as the seemingly inevitable assurance of the discovery of the Higgs Boson seems to be now, I see only questions in our future.
Dark matter, I feel, will be our most challenging quest.
I was reading an interesting article over at Space.com this morning by Clara Mozkowitz about a new stream of dark matter discovered in data that was collected way back in 2001.
WARNING: READ AT YOUR OWN RISK!
It was, I believe, in 1933 when Swiss astronomer Fritz Zwicky, while observing the orbital velocities of galaxies in galactic clusters, first noticed a mathematical anomaly within their movement. They were not moving in accordance with the gravitational masses revealed by their luminosities.
Generally, such calculations are very accurate, but not with respect to this cluster. Something else was (and still is) present.
Dark matter, which is that obscure something, has been known about and theorized about for almost one hundred years now.
So what is it?
Well, that’s just it. Nobody knows. Sure, there are plenty of cool explanations about it, one of the leading being that it is some type of Weakly Interacting Massive Particle or WIMP for short.
In my opinion, the WIMP theory is the closest to reality, but still falls horribly short when it comes to what dark matter actually is.
