One cannot talk about dark matter, without pondering upon hazard. Dark matter is maybe as elusive as the Holy Grail itself. Known only from tales and myths, like the Grail itself, dark matter came to our knowledge not by seeing it, but by studying its effects throughout time. Lately, a scientific paper, written by some of the most prestigious scholars out there, stated that planets are encircled by dark matter filaments.
Dark matter, a modern day enigma for astrophysics, is a hypothetical model of matter. Although it cannot be seen directly, it would seem that dark matter accounts for all matter in the Universe. Traditionally, astrophysicists are able to emit assertions on dark matter existence by studying its effects on other celestial forces such as gravity.
Another strange fact about the elusive form of matter is that is does not interact with any visible phenomena. Dark matter isn’t capable of absorbing different forms of radiation such as light of electromagnetic radiation.
According to modern cosmology, the Universe consists of 4.9 percent baryonic matter, 26.8 percent dark matter and a whopping 68.3 percent dark energy. Dark matter what a term coined to explain certain incongruences regarding the mass of observable celestial body. For example, although certain measurements suggest that a celestial body has a certain mass, the gravitational forces that work around it would come to suggest that the body itself, consisting of matter, is much larger and heavier than it appears.
The new theory suggests that the planets are encircled by dark matter filaments. Furthermore, any changes that occur, be it in the planet’s inner core or the planet’s outer core, can be determined by studied the pulsation in these filaments of dark matter.
Recent computer simulation have revealed that dark matter amass in some fine streams such as filaments. These filaments contain endless streams of particles that move at the same speed and are capable or orbiting galaxies. But that’s not the end of it.
It would seem that all planets or stars that have a gravitational field experience these dark matter filaments. The scientists believe that these streams, as they go by our planet, become focused in a point, which will later become something like a root, and they spring forward, forming something like a tip.
Even more interesting is the fact that each time a dark matter stream penetrates a planet such as ours, it is capable of retaining stream of information regarding the planet. So, if scientists are capable of determining how dark matter work, they will find in it a useful tool capable of studying our planet and many other in great detail.
