New model replaces dark energy theory with magnetic forces

It has been long believed that 70 percent of the universe is composed of dark energy, which makes it expand at an ever-increasing rate. However, a new model by researchers from the University of Copenhagen (UCPH) suggests that the expansion is due to a dark...

Exotic particles as the Sun aligns with the center of the Milky Way

As the Sun made an annual alignment with the black hole at the center of the Milky Way galaxy on December 18, 2016, the scientists at CERN carried out the first of a kind experiment to measure hypothetical exotic particles possibly emitted by the black hole. The...

Physicists calculate the mass of dark matter

A team of scientists from Germany and Hungary used a supercomputer simulation to predict the mass of axions particles, promising candidates for dark matter. The dark matter is an invisible matter, the existence of which has so far manifested only through its...

Earth surrounded by dense, hairy filaments of dark matter

A new research, conducted by scientists of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, suggests that Earth is surrounded by long, 'hairy' filaments of dark matter. Theoretically, the hairy filaments, if detected could be used to map out the...

Does dark matter actually exist?

Scientists working at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory are proposing a radical new theory about the nature of invisible, theoretical dark matter particles. The scientists have developed what they call a “stealth dark matter” model, which...

Why The World Exists: The origins of existence

From the size of an electron's charge to the cosmological constant, the universe appears to be mysteriously fine-tuned to support life. Can dark matter or infinite parallel universes explain why the world exists, or are such questions fundamentally

Was the early Universe powered by “dark matter annihilation”?

According to modern cosmologists, the Universe is composed primarily of dark matter. More than 95% of all that exists is unseen and undetectable by the most sensitive instruments yet devised. Many astrophysicists claim that the earliest stellar formations were (and

Highlights of The Electric Universe Theory

The "Electric Universe" is a hypothesis, a new way of interpreting scientific data in the light of new knowledge about plasma and electricity. In this interpretation, gravity plays a secondary role behind the far more powerful electric force, and electrified plasma in
