Nasa Discovers Dark Matter

Nasa Discovers Dark Matter
Intellekt I don't think you are thinking about Dark Matter. It hasn't been created by any laboratory and it doesn't need to be created since it's all around us at every moment. It's actually only been a theory to explain why our universe functions like a universe with about 22% more mass. They can only detect it based upon gravatational forces.

Quick explaination - dark matter refers to matter that does not emit or reflect enough electromagnetic radiation (such as light, x-rays and so on) to be detected directly, but whose presence may be inferred from its gravitational effects on visible matter.

In fact it's speculated that only 4% of the universe is visible to us. The other 74% is believed to be dark energy. It's altogether crazy and I don't think any of them know what's up with the universe, but their trying their best:P

Little Update-

Colliding stars light up dark matter

Marc Kaufman, Washington
August 23, 2006

FOR decades, scientists have theorised that the universe is made up of nearly undetectable mysterious substances called dark matter and dark energy. But until Monday there was no proof that the subatomic matter actually existed.

After studying data from a long-ago collision of two giant galaxies, researchers now say they are certain dark matter does exist and plays a central role in creating and defining gravity throughout the universe.

While the scientists are still not sure exactly what dark matter is, since they have yet to identify it in a laboratory, they said the workings of the universe cannot be explained without it.

The finding will have potentially great impact on an active debate among physicists and cosmologists about dark matter and the workings of gravity.

Indeed, the theory of dark matter evolved largely to explain the finding several decades ago that there was not enough visible matter in the universe to produce and account for the gravity needed to keep galaxies from flying apart.

"A universe that's dominated by dark stuff seems preposterous, so we wanted to test whether there were any basic flaws in our thinking," said Doug Clowe of the University of Arizona in Tucson, leader of the NASA-Harvard University study. "These results are direct proof that dark matter exists."

Stacy McGaugh, an astrophysicist at the University of Maryland, said on Monday that he remained unpersuaded. "I agree that it is interesting, and may make more sense in terms of dark matter than alternative gravity," he said. "However, it is premature to say so."

Anyways, believe it if you want to or not, this is what they are giving to us. It's probable that this whole universe is holographic, but that doesn't mean we can't identify the materials that the hologram projects.
The belief in 'coincidence' is the prevalent superstition of the Age of Science.

I don't know why they have to call it dark matter, it could just as easily be something OUTSIDE of our universe exerting gravitational force through the barrier. Gravity is mostly conjecture itself and nobody really knows how it works. Nothing proven anyway. Why is it so weak?

&Having raised the earth's temperature 1 degree Fahrenheit in the last three decades, we're facing another increase of 4 degrees over the next century. That would imply changes that constitute practically a different planet. It's not something we can adapt to. We can't let it go on another 10 years like this.& - NASA's Goddard Space Institute Director James Hansen

The crisis of modern democracy is a profound one. Free elections, a free press and an independent judiciary mean little when the free market has reduced them to commodities available on sale to the highest bidder.

The structure of capitalism is flawed. The motor that powers it cannot but vastly increase the disparity between the poor and the rich globally and within countries as well. Parecon is a brave argument for replacing that flawed machine and offers a much needed -- more equitable, democratic, participatory -- alternative economic vision.

Dr. Hermann Oberth who pioneered rocket design for the German Reich during World War II and later advanced rocket technology for the American manned space launches, cryptically stated: "We cannot take the credit for our record advancement in certain scientific fields alone; we have been helped."

When asked by whom, he replied: "The people of other worlds."
