The Chameleon –“Dark Energy is Hiding”

Chameleon Theory of Gravity

 

Justin Khoury,  physicist at the University of Pennsylvania, has proposed one possible reason why dark energy particles have yet to be detected: “they’re hiding from us.”

“Illusion of Death” –‘In the Quantum Universe We Exist Indefinitely’

 

Lost Hubble Frontier Image

 

The renowned mathematical physicist, Sir Roger Penrose at the University of Oxford and researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Physics in Munich suggest that the physical universe that we live in is only our perception and once our physical bodies die, there is an infinite beyond. Some believe that consciousness travels to parallel universes after death.

Dark Matter –“Is Disappearing Since the Big Bang”

Dark Matter in Early Universe

 

“Let’s imagine that dark matter consists of several components, as in ordinary matter (protons, electrons, neutrons, neutrinos, photons). And one component consists of unstable particles with a rather long lifespan: in the era of the formation of hydrogen hundreds of thousands of years after the Big Bang they are still in the Universe, but by now billions of years later, they have disappeared, having decayed into neutrinos or hypothetical relativistic particles.

“The Scout?” –Could Astronomers Be Wrong About Solar System’s First Interstellar Visitor

Milky Way Galaxy

 

 

“Signs of advanced alien intelligence will be indistinguishable from nature,” says futurist Karl Schroeder. On October 19, 2017, astronomers discovered the first known interstellar object to visit our solar system. First spotted by the Panoramic Survey Telescope and Rapid Response System 1 (PanSTARRS1) telescope located at the University of Hawaii’s Haleakala Observatory, the object defied easy description, simultaneously displaying characteristics of both a comet and an asteroid.

“Collapse!” –Ancient Redshift Black Holes a Billion Times More Massive than the Sun

Supermassive Black Holes

 

 

The discovery of black holes was the first collision of quantum gravity with general relativity: astrophysicists at Western University have found evidence for the direct formation of black holes that do not need to emerge from a star remnant. The production of black holes in the early universe, formed in this manner, may provide scientists with an explanation for the presence of extremely massive black holes at a very early stage in the history of our universe.
