...A fluid which possesses "negative mass"!

Which means that missing 95 percent of the cosmos might have just been found!
Been wondering where (why we couldn't see/explain where it is/was/went) my whole life.

 
quote

Scientists at the University of Oxford 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." 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 recognized 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.

This new model, published today in Astronomy and Astrophysics, by Dr. Jamie Farnes from the Oxford e-Research Centre, Department of Engineering Science, offers a new explanation. Dr. Farnes says: "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 existence of negative matter had previously been ruled out as it was thought this material would become less dense as the Universe expands, which runs contrary to our observations that show dark energy does not thin out over time. However, Dr. Farnes' research applies a 'creation tensor," which allows for negative masses to be continuously created. It demonstrates that when more and more negative masses are continually bursting into existence, this negative mass fluid does not dilute during the expansion of the cosmos. In fact, the fluid appears to be identical to dark energy.

Dr. Farnes's theory also provides the first correct predictions of the behaviour of dark matter halos. Most galaxies are rotating so rapidly they should be tearing themselves apart, which suggests that an invisible 'halo' of dark matter must be holding them together. The new research published today features a computer simulation of the properties of negative mass, which predicts the formation of dark matter halos just like the ones inferred by observations using modern radio telescopes.

Albert Einstein provided the first hint of the dark universe exactly 100 years ago, when he discovered a parameter in his equations known as the 'cosmological constant," which we now know to be synonymous with dark energy. Einstein famously called the cosmological constant his 'biggest blunder," although modern astrophysical observations prove that it is a real phenomenon. In notes dating back to 1918, Einstein described his cosmological constant, writing that 'a modification of the theory is required such that "empty space" takes the role of gravitating negative masses which are distributed all over the interstellar space." It is therefore possible that Einstein himself predicted a negative-mass-filled universe.

Dr. Farnes says: "Previous approaches to combining dark energy and dark matter have attempted to modify Einstein's theory of general relativity, which has turned out to be incredibly challenging. This new approach takes two old ideas that are known to be compatible with Einstein's theory—negative masses and matter creation—and combines them together.

"The outcome seems rather beautiful: dark energy and dark matter can be unified into a single substance, with both effects being simply explainable as positive mass matter surfing on a sea of negative masses."

Proof of Dr. Farnes's theory will come from tests performed with a cutting-edge radio telescope known as the Square Kilometre Array (SKA), an international endeavour to build the world's largest telescope in which the University of Oxford is collaborating.

Dr. Farnes adds: "There are still many theoretical issues and computational simulations to work through, and LambdaCDM has a nearly 30 year head start, but I'm looking forward to seeing whether this new extended version of LambdaCDM can accurately match other observational evidence of our cosmology. If real, it would suggest that the missing 95% of the cosmos had an aesthetic solution: we had forgotten to include a simple minus sign."

Finding a cosmos in theory , unifying two theories, interesting. There must be more theories.

The dire warning regarding dark matter around Uranus has already been made.

Admittedly, that would be very cool. If, we were prepared to handle whatever we found on the other side.
I don't think we're ready for that.

According to what I've seen, that "negative mass fluid" hypothesis has some issues. Namely, some of the ideas it's founded on have already been debunked. Here's a quick explanation:

Think they are just making crap up, as the technology is starting to undo all the big bang lies they have been telling for decades.
Like black holes, that shouldn't be where they are and as huge as they are, using the b/s time line they have claimed of the big bang.
And stars way to far out to have been able to get there and form to what we are seeing today.
But they'll tell us every chance we get that the bible is all made up stories and lies, and the big bang is fact. pfft.

Sheer curiosity on my part... is there a conflict that makes the scientific theory of the Big Bang irreconcilable with Christian belief?


This is from the King James Version of the New Testament
https://www.kingjamesbibleonline.org/John-1-1/
 
quote
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by Him; and without Him was not any thing made that was made. In Him was life; and the life was the light of men. [John 1:1]


So "all things" were made by God... what would be wrong (from the Christian perspective) for a Christian to accept that the Big Bang is the recipe (so to speak) that God used to create all things? Or for a Christian to accept that the Big Bang is currently the most plausible of all the scientific explanations that have been attempted to describe the universe as it appears to us, and to describe our own existence?

"The human mind, no matter how highly trained, cannot grasp the universe. We are in the position of a little child, entering a huge library whose walls are covered to the ceiling with books in many different tongues. The child knows that someone must have written those books. It does not know who or how. It does not understand the languages in which they are written. The child notes a definite plan in the arrangement of the books, a mysterious order, which it does not comprehend, but only dimly suspects. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of the human mind, even the greatest and most cultured, toward God. We see a universe marvelously arranged, obeying certain laws, but we understand the laws only dimly. Our limited minds cannot grasp the mysterious force that sways the constellations." ~ some guy named Al

Id say it doesn't not fit. I mean it defines quite well what it would look like if it was spoken and just became. If that were somehow measurable which it probably isn't.
Science being the measuring that we do, seems sometimes sort of just us seeing what is now and estimating a past.

I believe that science, at it’s best, is man’s attempt to understand God’s plan. At it’s worst, it is a sinister deception.

Man will probably never know the whole truth, but whatever that truth is, it was created by God.

God gave us things we could use. In order to make the best use of these things, we should do our best to understand them.
