Mysterious Dark Matter.
The Universe Is Expanding At Great Speeds.
SCIFI author Hank Curci who holds a Master’s Degree in Mathematics from Stanford University, looks at the mysterious DARK MATTER.
DARK MATTER is found throughout the Milky Way Galaxy and the Universe at large.
What is it, can it save the Universe from extinction.
We do not know what DARK MATTER is we can only see its GRAVITATIONAL effects when measuring the rotational velocity of the Milky Way Galaxy.
This galactic rotation value is incorrect when only the visible stars are used, hence there is something else contributing to the mass of the milky way galaxy and that SOMETHING is labeled DARK MATTER of which we have no idea what it is.
NOTE: There is also something called DARK ENERGY which is not to be confused with DARK MATTER…
Dark matter does not absorb substantial electromagnetic radiation at any wavelength.
The question remains: All the stars and galaxies in the universe are flying away from each other at great speeds…will there be enough gravity to stop this expansion or will the universe continue to expand for ever and finally die having no more life-giving stars and galaxies.
Astrophysicist are asking if the mass of the dark matter will step in and stop the expansion recollecting the cosmos in to another big bang….it may take 50 billion years to find out the fate of the Universe.
However, if our Universe is just one of millions of other Universes, as some scientist speculate, then it really doesn’t mater if we lose an occasional hundred millions galaxies and trillions of stars it just keeps going on and on forever…Maybe…
