“Mind of God?” –The Detection of ‘String-Theory’ Particles Would Change Physics Forever”

Perseus galaxy

 

“In string theory,” writes physicist Michu Kaku, “all particles are vibrations on a tiny rubber band; physics is the harmonies on the string; chemistry is the melodies we play on vibrating strings; the universe is a symphony of strings, and the “Mind of God” is cosmic music resonating in 11 dimensional hyperspace.”

“The D-Star Hexaquark”–It’s Discovery Could Solve the Big Mystery of Dark Matter

Dark Matter Particles

 

Theories about the origin of dark matter in the universe –one of the biggest questions in science–vary from suggesting that it may be older than the Big Bang to particles the size of galaxies to highly-speculative dark-matter life, consistent with the known laws of the universe.

“Newton’s Gravity?” — A Universe Without Dark Matter

Galaxy without Dark Matter

 

Scientists have yet to crack the enduring mystery of dark matter, but conjectures vary from suggesting that it may be older than the Big Bang to particles the size of galaxies to highly-speculative dark-matter life, consistent with the known laws of the universe. Now, researchers from the Universities of Bonn and Strasbourg have simulated the formation of galaxies in a universe without dark matter.

Dark Matter Particles the Size of Planets? –“Yes” Say ‘Cold-Model’ Physicists

Cold Dark Matter Halo

 

“At first, we thought it was absurd. How else could you respond to the idea that black holes generate swirling clouds of planet-sized particles that could be the dark matter thought to hold galaxies together? We tend to think about particles as being tiny but, theoretically, there is no reason they can’t be as big as a galaxy,” said theoretical physicist Asimina Arvanitaki, at the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics referring to the heated debate about the standard model for dark matter that proposes that it is ‘cold,’ meaning that the particles move slowly compared to the speed of light which is tied to the mass of dark matter particles. The lower the mass of the particle, the ‘warmer’ it is and the faster it will move.

NASA Hubble Team –“Finds 1st Evidence for Cold Dark Matter Theory”

Cold Dark Matter Clump

 

Although the type of particle that makes up dark matter is still a mystery, a NASA team using the Hubble Space Telescope has made a very compelling observational test for the cold dark matter model that passes “with flying colors,” said Tommaso Treu of the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), a member of NASA’s team who used a new “cosmic magnifying glasses” technique that found that dark matter forms much smaller clumps (image above) than previously known, confirming one of the fundamental predictions of the widely accepted “cold dark matter” theory.
