A Particle Physics Experiment Might Have Directly Observed Dark Energy

Post by fred8615 »

About 25 years ago, astrophysicists noticed something very interesting about the Universe. The fact that it was in a state of expansion had been known since the 1920s, thanks to the observation of Edwin Hubble. But thanks to the observations astronomers were making with the space observatory that bore his name (the Hubble Space Telescope), they began to notice how the rate of cosmic expansion was getting faster!

This has led to the theory that the Universe is filled with an invisible and mysterious force, known as Dark Energy (DE). Decades after it was proposed, scientists are still trying to pin down this elusive force that makes up about 70% of the energy budget of the Universe. According to a recent study by an international team of researchers, the XENON1T experiment may have already detected this elusive force, opening new possibilities for future DE research.

Thank you for sharing.
There are more news we are keen to come more frequently in near decades.

For about 2500 years since Democritus till 2012, when the Higgs boson, discovered at the CERN, there might have been a question about emptiness between particles.

Now Dark Matter and Dark Energy have more room to be focused in!
We know already that they are there by galaxies halos and collisions.
