Einstein was Right and Continues to Enlighten Understanding of Universe #physics #maths #science

I’m fascinated by cosmology and quantum physics. Although I don’t speak Expanding universe since the Big Bangenough math to truly follow the science, I ran across a post that actually gives me an intuitive feel for Dark Energy – the almost mystical stuff that makes up a large part of the universe if we accept measurements of mass density wave-patterns. This post has tons of views – leave a comment – what do you think? Here’s the proposition”

Relativistic effects explain the observations evidencing the existence of Dark Matter around galaxies and galaxy clusters. When energy passes closer to galaxies it “slows down” due to gravitational time dilations.

The accumulative effect is a substantial increase in energy density when seen… far from the center of galaxies and that… is imperceptible for an observer within the galaxy. Gregorio Baquero

Visit Baquero to see the math, or just to read his narrative. He concludes:

There is no need for particularly special particles forming Dark Matter substance or even parallel universes’ escaped gravity to account for the extra gravity existing around cosmic structures. In a way, Dark Matter is just traveling energy.

I can get that – it makes sense to me. The speed of light is constant but the shape of space varies with mass. Gravity is the shape of space, thanks to energy interactions.

He doesn’t post his credentials or name collegeues, and I’m not competent to judge the math, but I admit I’m emotionally draw to Baquero‘s concluding sentence, which I paraphrased to title this post. Einstein hasn’t been left behind by quantum physics – not yet.

I’ve tried to capture my feelings in rhyme: Gravity Fights Dark Energy

Universe’s Missing Piece #physics #science #poetry #boson #poem

Simulated Data model from the Large Hadron Collider

Simulated Data model from the Large Hadron Collider

In all of creation,
In all the gains and losses,
There only are four

That’s the Standard Model
Which for years has served so well
Predicting interactions
On the cosmic

Yet something has been missing,
Something that evades,
Dark matter and dark energy
Beyond the model

Oddly interacting
Are dark light’s weak protons
That could be an anomaly
Or protophobic

The ideas are exciting,
But confirmation’s key
Before our minds can grasp
What makes up

#DarkMatter Is Everywhere or Nowhere #space #poetry


Color of all light in the universe added up to a shade of beige called cosmic latte

It’s everywhere.
It’s nowhere.
It can’t be seen,
But hardly rare.
Gravitational effects
In axes x, y, z;
Dark matter clarifies
Mass discrepancies.
We just don’t know
What it might be,
But it’s embraced
In the community.
It accounts for most
Of what’s not seen,
Or does not exist –
It’s entropy.
Is it gamma rays?
Or dwarf galaxies?
But we can’t see
Any of these.
Can’t rule it out,
Can’t rule it in,
Can’t detect
With germanium.
It won’t absorb,
It won’t emit          .
But don’t commit.

Dark matter forms over 80% of the universe, or maybe none at all. A real puzzle. Learn more at Wikipedia or NatGeo, “a maddening refrain in the search for the invisible, omnipresent particles.”
