Everything Worth Knowing About … a Dark Universe

How Do We Know It’s There?

Space telescopes study a Big Bang’s vestige deviation (the vast x-ray background) have found a star is roughly ideally flat. That means light travels in true lines unless it encounters mass. Scientists contend this usually unequivocally creates clarity in a star packed with some kind of dim energy.

Dark appetite would also explain because a universe’s enlargement is accelerating. Although we’ve famous for about a century that galaxies are decrease from ours, scientists prolonged speculated that matter’s gravitational heft would eventually delayed vast enlargement — maybe even retreat it, culminating in what’s called a Big Crunch. In 1998, however, dismayed astronomers detected a opposite. A certain kind of bursting star, called a supernova, incited out to be fainter than approaching in a apart past, indicating that a star is ballooning during an ever-faster rate, and has been for scarcely half of a 13.8 billion-year existence. At a stream shave of vast growth, a stretch between galaxies will double in 10 billion years.
