Dark Matter May Not Exist

first_imgAstrophysicists may be tiring of searching for things they know nothing about. The consequences could be revolutionary.The non-detection of dark matter and confusion about dark energy are taking their toll. Astrophysicists may have to bite the bullet and say that these mysterious entities don’t exist.Dark Energy Gets Weirder: Mysterious Force May Vary Over Time (Live Science). Dark energy is not dark matter, and vice versa; the two are related by the word “dark” and the fact that astrophysicists know nothing about either of them. The headline reminds one of saying, “ghosts are so weird, they might change shape over time.” Even so, is the theory of dark energy really helping?“Some scientists suggested that new physics might be needed to explain this discrepancy, including the possibility that dark energy is growing in strength,” Risaliti said. “Our new results agree with this suggestion.“International team of physicists continues search for new physics (Purdue University). Here’s another article that dabbles with “new physics” to explain our universes. The operative word in the following quote is “could” as if in the proverb, “If pigs had wings, they could fly.”“Some believe there’s a mediator that talks to dark matter particles. If that’s the case, and it couples to the Higgs, we might be able to see it in top quark physics,” he said. “We’ve only looked at a fraction of the data we’ve collected so far. There could still be something there.”Finding dark matter in the dark (University of Melbourne). Another team is going to spend lots of money and effort to look for dark matter impinging on fluid deep in a mine. All previous searches have failed. Is it the hope of a Nobel Prize that spurs the hunters? This is more an adventure story than a science article. Watch that “could” word again.Dark matter is the mysterious material that holds the Universe together, yet no one has seen it; or heard, smelled, tasted or touched it either.But that may soon change, and a laboratory 1000 metres below the ground in the Stawell gold mine halfway between Melbourne and Adelaide could be the epicentre of this discovery.Dark matter may not actually exist – and our alternative theory can be put to the test. (The Conversation). Juri Smirnov is betting on MOND (Modified Newtonian Dynamics), not dark matter, to explain the observations. Unfortunately, MOND theory is beset with problems of its own. As a result, Smirnov and colleagues have a modified MOND theory (modified-modified-Newtonian-dynamics) they want to test.We are watching a possible scientific revolution in the making. They will either eventually find these dark things within standard theory, or have to leave behind the standard view of one of the “hard sciences” (physics) at least at cosmic scales. The lesson is that scientific theories are always tentative. They can explain a lot, till anomalies crop up. Persistent anomalies can lead to revolutionary new ideas. What scientists think they know now, therefore, is always up for revision.(Visited 730 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Tripura to set up AIIMS-like facility

first_imgThe Tripura government would establish a high-tech hospital on the lines of the All India Institute of Medical Sciences at Delhi. Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb on Wednesday visited Bodhjungnagar at the outskirts of Agartala to check the availability of land and work out other modalities.The Vision Document of the BJP released ahead of the Assembly elections in Tripura in February had assured setting up of an adequate number of multi-speciality hospitals with trauma care and an AIIMS-like facility in the State.After his visit, Mr. Deb said the site, which has more than 250 acres of government land, seemed suitable for establishing such a facility. “This hospitalwould help patients from other places, specially from neighbouring Northeastern States,” he said, adding that once it is set up, people would not have to rush to Chennai and other major cities for critical treatment.last_img read more

Anwar disapproves of Sidhu’s Muslim pitch

first_imgSenior Congress leader Tariq Anwar on Wednesday disapproved of Navjot Singh Sidhus appeal to Muslims to defeat BJP and said he would have stopped the Punjab Minister from doing so had he been present at the rally held in his Lok Sabha constituency of Katihar. “I have always held the view that votes must never be sought in the name of religion and caste. This has also been the policy of the Congress party. I do not approve of what Sidhu has uttered. I would request the party leadership to take note for suitable action,” Mr. Anwar said in a statement.Mr. Sidhu, against whom an FIR has been lodged at Katihar in Bihar for violating the model code of conduct, made the controversial statement at a rally in Barsoi police station area of the district on Monday. The matter came to light when a video footage of his utterances were beamed on TV news channels on Tuesday wherein he could be heard asking Muslims, who have a sizeable presence in Katihar, to be wary of Asaduddin Owaisis AIMIM alleging that it was being propped up by the BJP. He also urged the Muslim voters to unite in favor of the Congress candidate Tariq Anwar and drawing an analogy from cricket, remarked Modi will go for a six if you do so. “I was not present at the Barsoi rally. Had I been there, I would have immediately stood up and expressed my disapproval of the way he was canvassing for me,” Mr. Anwar clarified in his statement. The episode in Bihar came close on the heels of the Election Commission taking punitive action Yogi Adityanath and Mayawati for violating the poll code of conduct.last_img read more
