Axionic Approach to Dark Matter and The Elemental Universe

 

ASTRO-PHYSICS

The Elemental Universe

Dark matter may be older than the big bang, study suggests,
Johns Hopkins University, August 7, 2019.

MAIN POINTS

What
Though not directly observable, scientists know dark matter exists by its gravitation effects on how visible matter moves and is distributed in space.

Failed Particle Search
"If dark matter were truly a remnant of the Big Bang, then in many cases researchers should have seen a direct signal of dark matter in different particle physics experiments already."

Scalar Particle
"...the study shows that dark matter may have been produced before the Big Bang during an era known as the cosmic inflation when space was expanding very rapidly. The rapid expansion is believed to lead to copious production of certain types of particles called scalars. So far, only one scalar particle has been discovered, the famous Higgs boson."

"...if it has anything to do with any scalar particles, it may be older than the Big Bang."

New Search Points
"The new study also suggests a way to test the origin of dark matter by observing the signatures dark matter leaves on the distribution of matter in the universe."

Physicists Analyze Rotational Dynamics of Galaxies and Influence of the Photon Mass,
Johannes Gutenberg Universitaet Mainz, March 5, 2019.

MAIN POINTS

The Missing Matter
“The orbital speeds of stars should decrease with their distance from the center of the galaxy, but in fact stars in the middle and outer regions of galaxies have the same rotational speed.”

Problem
We see gravity, but not matter.

Dark Matter
“...seeking it for decades, the existence of such 'dark matter' has yet to be definitively proven and we still don't know what it might be made of.”

Exploiting Ambiguities in the Standard Model: Axions

Kazan University puts forth ideas on the nature of dark matter,
Kazan Federal University, February 5, 2019.

MAIN POINTS

Scale of Darkness
“...dark energy and dark matter comprise 96% of the total mass of the Universe.”

Current Guesses
“Two main hypotheses about the nature of dark matter are presently debated. One of them posits that dark matter consists of massive compact halo objects, the other ascribes this property to weakly interacting mass particles.”

Strange Negative Mass Fluid explains Cosmological Constant, Dark Matter, & Dark Energy?

ASTROPHYSICS-NATURE of REALITY

Strange Negative Mass Fluid explains Cosomological Constant, Dark Matter, & Dark Energy?

Bringing balance to the universe: New theory could explain missing 95 percent of the cosmos,
University of Oxford, December 5, 2018.

MAIN POINTS

Theoretical Achievement
“...may have solved one of the biggest questions in modern physics, with a new paper unifying dark matter and dark energy into a single phenomenon: a fluid which possesses 'negative mass'.”

Negative Mass
“If you were to push a negative mass, it would accelerate towards you. This astonishing new theory may also prove right a prediction that Einstein made 100 years ago.”

“Our current, widely recognised model of the Universe, called LambdaCDM, tells us nothing about what dark matter and dark energy are like physically. We only know about them because of the gravitational effects they have on other, observable matter.”

Dark Fluid
'We now think that both dark matter and dark energy can be unified into a fluid which possesses a type of 'negative gravity', repelling all other material around them. Although this matter is peculiar to us, it suggests that our cosmos is symmetrical in both positive and negative qualities.'

The Dark Debate

A New Model

Our Limited Knowledge & Observations May be the Problem Itself

Dark matter and dark energy: Do they really exist?
UNIVERSITÉ DE GENÈVE, November 22, 2017.

According to the model introduced above, the "cosmological constant" operating in the invariance of empty space makes the need for dark matter & energy irrelevant.

Yet this theory does not describe the source of the cosmological constant's force or acceleration, just that it "is." Let's take a closer look at what is.

Wiki:

"The cosmological constant is the value of the energy density of the vacuum of space. It was originally introduced by Albert Einstein in 1917 as an addition to his theory of general relativity to "hold back gravity" and achieve a static universe, which was the accepted view at the time."

Support Tahoe to Whitney

The Tahoe to Whitney Trail Guide and Magazine are walked, written, funded, and supported by my efforts, with the help of kindred spirits and my sister.

We offer valuable Trail Guide, Skills, Weather, News and Analysis.

My goal is to get you out to see your natural and social potential. Help me keep this unique resource accessible and expanding towards its potential. We've a lot of miles to cover ahead...

I NEED HELP!
If you feel these efforts are valuable, I'm cordially inviting you to support them, here:

 

 

I am currently working towards publishing the completed guide between Tahoe & Yosemite as an e-book, while converting this "blog" to a fine magazine format. You will like the results! Help Tahoe to Whitney reach its potential!
