But this esoteric dark matter so beloved of astrophysicists mmm not so sure
and i doubt its an (anti) anything as every time it came upon a particle of normal matter you would get
a burst of energy which to an xray telescope would make the sky look like a rock concert audience!
Astronomers and astrophysicists ... don't like to be left out of anything so they had t invent dark matter and dark energy. Since they also wanted a
great "mystery" they made these two "things" something unknown and hard to explain/define. But, at the same time, they didn't want to be the laughing
stock of science so what they did was "steal" something "real" from another science and rename it.
They took from good ole / normal (sort of ) physics, Zero Point Energy and made it "Dark Energy", and "Quantum Foam" and made it "Dark Matter". both
are relatively well known in physics, and of course, completely "mysterious" Depending on which camp you are in.
To a REAL physicist ZPE and Quantum Foam are real, relatively understood phenomenon, something science can actually "sink it's teeth" into. Dark
energy/matter may never be understood, we know this because the astronomer and astrophysicist tell us this.
ZPE is already providing "free" energy to the "nano" world, and may bring "cheap" energy to the "macro" (our) world soon.
Dark energy and matter remain a mystery.
I think the only real question here is "why" science can't get their s*** together enough to agree on something. And, of course, why does the "Astro"
world have to steal their science fiction from real science
