What's the Matter? Scientists Spot the Missing Part of the Universe

11 October 2017

The missing links between galaxies have finally been found. However, the results are still consistent, and would accurately account for the distribution of visible matter across the universe.

A term, Baryonic matter if used in the astronomy, which consists of a large number of particles of building-block that take place in the high school text book of physics including neutrons, protons and electrons. However, there is an abstruse problem of missing baryon particles.

This matter was presumed to occupy the space between galaxies, and was called baryonic matter.

Alibaba invests US$15B in overseas tech, AI research
The company is hiring 100 researchers to work on Artificial Intelligence (AI), Quantum computing and Fintech. The program has tentatively been titled 'Discovery, Adventure, Momentum, and Outlook (DAMO)'.

Scientists have for the first time detected the missing matter in our universe - present in the form of strings of hot gas linking galaxies - that was unaccounted for by previous space observations.

The teams looked at galaxies mapped in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey predicted to be connected by baryons.

The scientists analyzed data obtained by the orbiting observatory Planck, created to study the cosmic microwave background (CMB), which remained after the Universe became transparent to thermal radiation. The other team was led by Anna de Graaff at the University of Edinburgh, UK.

As the light travels, some of it scatters off the electrons in the gas, leaving a dim patch in the cosmic microwave background - remnants from the birth of the cosmos. This phenomenon allowed the researchers to see strands of matter that are normally far too dim to observe.

PC market declines further
Gartner and IDC analysts have pointed to a variety of factors of this past quarter's decline, including component shortages. Dell , which had the slightest decline (0.4 percent), shipped 10.15 million to come in at third on the list.

Both groups found confirmation that the gas in the areas they were studying were dense enough to form filaments, "definitive" evidence they existed between the galaxies.

"The missing baryon problem is solved", Tanimura told the magazine.

"We expect some differences because we are looking at filaments at different distances", says Tanimura.

Ralph Kraft, from the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics in MA, said the findings help align the discrepancy between observations and simulations of the universe.

Burton, who was 21 at that time , said that she didn't know how to react then and laughed it off in a nervous situation. Burton spoke of the claims on Twitter in response to a fan who wrote: 'Ben Affleck should've just kept quiet.

Ralph Kraft at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics in MA, added: 'Everybody sort of knows that it has to be there, but this is the first time that somebody has come up with a definitive detection.
