View Full Version : Dark Matter

18th December 2009, 06:57 PM
An international team of physicists believe they may have detected two particles of the elusive substance for the first time at the bottom of a mine shaft.

"Confirmation of the particles would also constitute the first evidence for a new feature of nature, called supersymmetry, that physicists have been seeking as avidly as the astronomers have been seeking dark matter. Supersymmetry argues that every particle in the universe is paired with a twin somewhere else."

Those articles would be better if they were spell and grammar checked. Just a pet peeve of mine. But other than that, that is uber-cool, historic.

dark matter is also knon as anti matter. it, when come in contact with matter, same amount of matter and anti matter cancels each other in burst of enormous energy.
1kg antimatter if contact 1 kg matter will produce energy more than 100kg of nuclear bomb.
it is very difficult to make. scientists habe artificially made it by converting energy, so same amount of matter and antimatter is made. cost of 1g of anti hydrogen is about $65 trillion.

dark matter is also known as anti matter.
No it doesn't.
They are different things.

It is conceivable that the dark matter (or at least part of it) could be antimatter, but there are very strong experimental reasons to doubt this. For example, if the dark matter out there were antimatter, we would expect it to annihilate with matter whenever it meets up with it, releasing bursts of energy primarily in the form of light. We see no evidence in careful observations for that, which leads most scientists to believe that whatever the dark matter is, it is not antimatter.

in one's continuance of error for error's sake, one is bound to become forgetful within the forgetful counterpart yet seeming to be.

this law may be seen in what christians call 'fearing god', or the statement of course which states "the lord giveth and the lord taketh away".

truly it is fearing the prevalance of one's self in re-membrance by one's own exclusivity of personal nature to forget the memory which is oneness. I need time to digest this, which is why I set it aside.
