Shaking Up the Dark Universe: The Dark Horses of Dark Matter

Full Program: 2016 World Science Festival | 01:17:01

Original Program Date: Thursday, June 2, 2016

Featuring Cosmologist Katherine Freese, Physicist Justin Khoury, Astronomer, Cosmologist, Philosopher Stacy McGaugh, and Physicist Neal Weiner with Journalist John Hockenberry Moderating

Forget what you think you know about dark matter. After a 30-year search for a single, as yet unidentified, species of dark matter particle that would make up some 25% of the mass of the universe, physicists are starting to consider novel explanations. Some envision invisible matter hiding within the folds of extra spatial dimensions. Others suggest not one kind of dark matter particle, but numerous species inhabiting a shadow universe. Others still conjecture that dark matter doesn’t exist, and instead propose that the laws of gravity need modification. We’ll bring together leading thinkers on dark matter—the revolutionary and conventional alike—for a distinctly unconventional discussion on the dark universe.

become part from it, then this temperature will be commensurable with the temperature of the known stars in our galaxy. The different temperature places of this relic radiation, has nothing to do with discussed hypothetical big bang. Moreover in present imagination of big bang we cannot explain how this radiation exist without any mass carrier, but only like post factor of some hypothetical event – called big bang . And many more…… And this: Nice and comprehensive review, about the features of light in the medium and with medium, which means that there exist mass (atoms, molecules, crystal structures), which it isn’t so about the hypothetical big band physically impossible to exist energy – “purely energy” without any mass?! Then from what is contains this purely energy, or simple it isn’t possible to exist – that is about Higgs scalar field. Obviously the observation of sky far infra red radiation (incorrectly called here as a relict radiation) and its eventually polarization in fact has some mass carrier which is actually heat conductor. What is the nature of this matter and why we don’t see it? Because this is the so called dark matter which is contains from proto particles. According to USM www.kanevuniverse.com if we sing in the space of this proto particle and become part of it then we can see very many stars similar to ours in our space, this stars are from subspace where the atoms (nuclei and nuclear particles) of our space are the galaxies in the subspace. Proto particle is many times lighter than the proton and slightly less lightly than the electron and many times heavier than the neutrino and this particle in fact was born on the center of our galaxy (which is in force about any galaxy) and gives the beginning of the these three stable particles, which it isn’t form of fantasy, but physically proven fact, see Q&A USM www.kanevuniverse.com By the way on the part III is given the essence of the electromagnetic waves and you can convince yourselves that such electromagnetic process can’t travel in empty or absolute space (which it isn’t vacuum because in the vacuum exist definite above proto particles which are galaxies from the subspace). By the essence of the field creation (see USM) follows that such absolute space cannot exist. So this is another proof that the so called Higgs scalar field cannot exist and one of the very convincingly reason (only one from large number!) that such event like big bang never happen! But let return towards the proto particles and try to estimate the sub temperature (similar to the same measurement in our space) of the surface where this radiation is produces by the sub stars there. We take the coefficient of thickening of the micro cosmos observed from our position – “solid body” of our space (see USM) which is 2,63.10 rising to a 4 power folds. So multiplied this coefficient by the temperature of this far infra red radiation (relict) which is several degree (K) we obtain that the surface temperature of sub stars are around 20000 to 50000 degree (K) which is nice result about similar young star in our space, but not trillions degree (big bang supposition!) which can’t exist because we can’t measure this temperature not because it is almost infinite, but because there we haven’t mass and therefore accelerations and forces and measurement of such phenomenon is impossible, which means that it isn’t exist! But I believe that this experiment has huge potential and will be correctly to continue further. I propose the following experiment: The idea is to see (how it is possible of course) whether in the frequencies which are responsible about the galactic dust, exists some “red shifting” (low frequency part thickening) and to compare such eventually shifting about the main observed radiation. Because about the close to us (as a observers - radius position of our Sun in the galaxy) dust, such shifting shouldn’t exist (we are shifting together with this dust towards the periphery of the galaxy), but if we discovery such shifting in the main radiation, this will be direct evidence that the observed radiation comes from the proto particles, which in fact represent the galaxies from the sub space, which shouldn’t shift compared to the stars (including our Sun). Actually what is observed as a radiation reminds a lot the “universe” of the sub space, which is similar to our universe if we can look it from above! G.Kanev
