There is something very strange happens in space – something that should not be possible. It’s as if large parts of the world are being ravaged by a huge and invisible celestial vacuum. Sasha Kaslinsky, the scientist who discovered the phenomenon, is understandably nervous: “We left very upset and nervous,” he says, “because this is not something we planned to find.”
The accidental discovery of what is disturbing is called “dark flow” not only has implications for the fate of a large number of galaxies – it also means that a large number of scientists would have to find a new way of understanding the universe. Dark flow is the latest in a long series of events that have threatened to rewrite the textbooks. Do you announce a new era of understanding, or which simply means that everything we know about the universe is wrong?
14 billion years there was nothing; then everything exploded into existence and the universe was born, but a new generation of cosmologists are challenging this theory. Cosmologists have built a replica of the universe through the use of equations, is called the standard model of cosmology and is the reason behind the Big Bang theory, however, this model is not in doubt. The theory of Professor Alan Guth challenges Big Bang, saying that the universe started small, allowing the temperature everywhere, even before large-scale expansion.
Stars closer to the edge of a galaxy is moving as fast as the center. This cosmologists think that the gravity necessary galaxies, but the only way to get more serious was to create it. Astrophysicist Dan Bauer is hunting for dark matter half a mile in the dark plains of Minnesota in order to locate and record more effectively. The discovery that the universe is accelerating, suggests that a new force is capable of powering the universe. This force is called dark energy, and cosmologists have no idea what it is.
The combination of the question of the standard model, inflation and the darkness has given way to a new theory called the dark flow. The nature of this theory could prove that our universe is not unique. The standard model of cosmology has endured much criticism, therefore, the stronger the theory, however, still could be completely wrong.
