Xploder thank you for bringing this article and new to light. I can't thank you enough
I have argued that dark matter and dark energy do not exist for a long time and perhaps they do exist perhaps they don't we just don't know but this
may help one side of the argument.
There was an article a week or so ago saying they confirmed Dark Energy and i passed it off as completely hogwash because to say we have "Confirmed"
Dark Energy so early on when there is so much more to learn about the Universe was ignorant at best.
New Method Confirms "Dark Energy"
I will take this new information and study it well that you have provided us with. This is very interesting and would like you to take a look at my
post on the dark energy thread from a week ago.
I simply could not accept it as confirmed because yes. Even as this study shows we are still very early on in learning all the mysteries of the
There is also something i must ask you say this has relation to the super structure walls in the universe; in the article it states the missing mass
in the filaments!
The article is extremely vague and the explanation is poor.
It was thought from a theoretical viewpoint that there should be about double the amount of matter in the local Universe compared to what was
observed. It was predicted that the majority of this missing mass should be located in large-scale cosmic structures called filaments – a bit like
Up until this point in time, theories were based solely on numerical models, so Fraser-McKelvie’s observations represent a true break-through in
determining just how much of this mass is caught in filamentary structure. “Most of the baryons in the Universe are thought to be contained within
filaments of galaxies, but as yet, no single study has published the observed properties of a large sample of known filaments to determine typical
physical characteristics such as temperature and electron density
Oh and Dark Energy hasn't been confirmed they've been spouting this nonsense for a decade now and usually it becomes dismissed next time someone finds
out that their models are not taking into account all the matter we truly don't know about the in the Universe.
We still have many mysteries to find out about the Universe.
All this study does is prove "dark energy" is pervasive. It doesn't prove it's uniform throughout the universe. I suspect that more study will show
that it's not a "cosmological constant", but a function of volume and density. The "emptier" space is, the faster it expands. Galaxies and clusters
shrink while voids balloon. That would explain the structure of the universe without having to invoke "dark matter" or "inflation", or any of that
