“A Fractured Cosmos?” –Unknown Object Detected at Milky Way’s Black Hole

Cosmic String Filament

 

An unknown object, perhaps a cosmic string, was detected at the Milky Way’s galactic center in 2016 that could have profound implications for understanding gravity, space-time and the Universe itself. Cosmic strings, galaxy-sized filaments of raw energy, may be threaded through spacetime, according to some theories. At the Big Bang, our universe exploded into being, expanded at a fantastic speed and cooled perhaps cracking the fabric of the universe with hairline fractures.

“The Last Holdout” –LHC Scientists Seek Portal to the ‘Dark-World’ Unveiled By the Higgs

“One particularly interesting possibility is that these long-lived dark particles are coupled to the Higgs boson in some fashion—that the Higgs is actually a portal to the dark world,” said LianTao Wang, a University of Chicago physicist, referring to the last holdout particle in physicists’ grand theory of how the universe works, discovered at the LHC in 2012. “We know for sure there’s a dark world, and there’s more energy in it than there is in ours. It’s possible that the Higgs could actually decay into these long-lived particles.”

CERN — LHC Announces New Higgs Discovery and Mystery: “Does It Interact With Dark Matter Particles?”

 

 

“The Higgs boson is an integral component of our universe and theorized to give all fundamental particles their mass,” said Patty McBride, distinguished scientist at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory and recently elected as one of the deputy spokespeople of the CERN CMS experiment. “But we haven’t yet confirmed exactly how this field interacts — or even if it interacts — with all the particles we know about, or if it interacts with dark matter particles which remain to be detected.”
