Study Suggests a 'Dark Mirror' Could Reside in Universe Within Ours Where Atoms Failed to form


You understand dark matter, the strange material that almost all physicists now consider that makes up the proportion of the universe — Although it remains totally invisible, besides its gravitational impact on regular matter?

There's no deficiency of far-out thesis regarding the hypothetical material: that it's hidden in interior of an extra dimension, that it begin in a second Bing Bang, that it's data itself, or even that it is nonexistent.

Currently, as detected by Flatiron Institute astrophysicist and indefatigable science journalist Paul Sutter, the latest paper proffer yet another exotic potential definition: that dark matter lives in a disfigured mirror universe inside of own, where atoms were incapable to form.

As Sutter describes, the study creates off a duo of exciting coincidences. First, study propose that there's a roughly similar quantity of regular and dark matter outside. And secondly, neutrons and protons have exactly the same mass, permitting them to make stable atoms.

Firstly, the theory goes, maybe there's a clone universe like ours in which neutrons and protons don't have that appropriate uniformity in mass, means the entire thing is a sad soup of subatomic particles that don't interconnect too much, describing why dark matter doesn't appear to clump up much.

Post script: the paper still not peer reviewed, and it's just different theory between many jostling to solve the riddle of dark matter, a irritating and lasting unspecified in our knowledge of the universe. But it contain an breathtaking author list, with scientists arranged from Fermilab to the University of Chicago — so we'll be looking to watch how it's acquired in the wider world of physics.
