If you’re interested in Physics or more specifically on the topic of Dark Matter, take a look at the article from PhysOrg.com here. A good little piece on the issue on how do we know something is missing when we don’t see it and how do we account for such matter in this universe.
Physicists on the Prowl for Dark Matter
(PhysOrg.com) — 95%. That is the percentage of the known Universe that is missing. As in it is not there. Or at least if it is there, we can’t see it. We call this unseen stuff “dark matter”. That has been well known for sometime. What is trickier in answering is why? Why is it that 95% of the universe is made up of this so-named “dark matter?” An even trickier question is where? As in where is this dark matter? It is those two questions that have plagued physicists for decades. Dark matter, by its own definition cannot be seen, hence its name. So how do we “see” it, how do we know “where” to look?
Kudos to my cousin who wrote it, so make sure to read the entire article and feel free to leave comments here or there about what you think.
Well this is a fantastic story coming out of The Daily Telegraph in Australia, where an astronaut by the name of Dr. Edgar Mitchell has claimed that aliens exist and on several occasions have already visited this lovely planet of ours.
Where he might sound a little loony is that he says they are quite similar to the folklore description of these alien creature with small frame, large eyes and head that would look quite strange to the humans.
What is a little nerve racking to say the least, he said that our technology is “not nearly as sophisticated” as those of our foreign visitors and “had they been hostile… we would be been gone by now”.
“I happen to have been privileged enough to be in on the fact that we’ve been visited on this planet and the UFO phenomena is real,” Dr Mitchell said. “It’s been well covered up by all our governments for the last 60 years or so, but slowly it’s leaked out and some of us have been privileged to have been briefed on some of it. I’ve been in military and intelligence circles, who know that beneath the surface of what has been public knowledge, yes – we have been visited. Reading the papers recently, it’s been happening quite a bit.”
NASA on the other hand were very quick to distance themselves from any statements he made by releasing a statement in which a spokesman said: “NASA does not track UFOs. NASA is not involved in any sort of cover up about alien life on this planet or anywhere in the universe. Dr Mitchell is a great American, but we do not share his opinions on this issue.”
I have long believed that it would be very naive for us to think that we are long in this large and very expansive universe. Certainly it would be remarkable the day that we do make contact with a specie from outside of Earth – or the day that it is made publicly known regarding the matter.
I am not certain how a majority of our population would take to such news and maybe it is for the better that the information be suppressed some what but by no means am I advocating that information be hidden from the public for nearly 60 years as has been alleged by Dr. Mitchell.
I think it is bound to cause some chaos with those who are always unafraid about things they do not know very well (whether it be other races, ideas or in this case aliens) but I think for the sake of humanity and our essential survival probably depends on maintaining contact with these creatures and ultimately leading to maybe colonizing and expanding outside of the realms of the Earth.
