Okay, so if this is the case, can we get rid of dark matter? I never liked the idea and just felt like it was something we threw out there just to cover a mistake we weren't aware of yet.
Classic Bloom County. One of my favorite strips of all time. Did you know Berkeley Breathed recently started publishing it again? I follow him on Facebook so a new strip shows up in my feed every day.
Those are strips from his new Facebook postings! I'm so happy he's back to writing.
Bloom County can put the most complex issue into beautifully simply terms without diluting it. Excellent!
That actually may be the case. I found this quote from a separate article covering the story.
Instead of finding evidence to support the accelerated expansion of the Universe, Sarkar and his team say it looks like the Universe is expanding at a constant rate. If that's truly the case, it means we don't need dark energy to explain it.
"A more sophisticated theoretical framework accounting for the observation that the Universe is not exactly homogeneous, and that its matter content may not behave as an ideal gas - two key assumptions of standard cosmology - may well be able to account for all observations without requiring dark energy," he says.
Can you post the link? I told my son that I didn't like dark matter and he got miffed, assuming I'm a creationist who doesn't like science or something. I was like "do you even know me?" I would love to shoot him a link and be like "SEE!?!?!"
Found it. There are a ton of sites covering that story. :) Already taunted son on Twitter.
Sorry, I should have included the link in my earlier post. Glad you found it. Happy taunting!
