the dark matter that swallows me every day

if scientists are right, then “reality” is made out of both the material we can actually see, bump into, make use of and have found all kinds of wonderful laws for; and a material called “dark matter” which apparently makes out 84% of the whole universe.

according to theoretical physics, dark matter [] can't be “seen” because it neither emits nor absorbs light, but it can be inferred from its gravitational effects on “light matter” and is needed to explain the observed movements of stars and galaxies.

it is still unknown what dark matter is composed of, how it is structured and what it actually “does”. although assumed since 30 years, only with modern satellite techniques we have begun to actually find evidence of its existence in the universe, and the the fermi space telescope satellite [] is continuing it's search for this mysterious material - which by all means, damnit, ought to be out there!

From personal physical experience, i just happen to know that it's here, there and everywhere… and that it's effects are profound. however, it may also be just my imagination, and that's why i'm leaving you with this pointless blog entry to ponder upon, or, if you so wish, just have a laugh at me.

I like that first shot... the dots and the blue. From your title I thought this was going to be a post of your work place!

Oh, not pointless in the least. I have to admit that I suspect that "dark matter" is bs that they came up with to make the math work... and in the end they're going to have to face the facts and tweak the math. But I hope I'm wrong, because it would be cool if they're right.

i will have a laugh with you but you have me pondering also.

i love the design of the dots leading to the blue slashes.

sometimes such posts as this make my world seem silly. but then again almost 4 year olds are supposed to be silly (i hope)

No hot chicks in Berlin from the looks of things.

If it's dark, does it matter?

Dark matter of History, of Space...It swallows but doubtless does not restore, and we get lost in our darkness !

As someone said "“The universe is made mostly of dark matter and dark energy, and we don't know what either of them is”.

And what on earth is this place?

I thought the LHC confirmed the existence of the Higgs boson last year... Anyway, I am very familiar with dark matter, especially when I forget to clean out the fridge before going away for extended periods.

nice post ;)
hmmm too bad for me, i was absent from class when my professor tackled about the dark matter.

there are many evidences about that dark matter, and your picture is also suggesting that, it certainly exists inside the human body

I remember my physics lessons and Newton's Law (?). A spinning coloured disc, which when spun quick enough, relected light and became white.
Pointless piece of information ... :-)) and a smile ... especially for you.
