Strictly Sci-Fi - Fun for Futurists

Lisa Grossman’s article “A curious case of missing darkness” NS 28 Apr 2012, reports that 3 surveys, one by Christian Moni Bindi’s team at the University of Concepcion, Chile, do not find Dark Matter, nor elusive proposed WIMPs, within a 13,000 light years radius of Earth and the teams can balance the forces holding the stars they observed together without the allegedly missing 83% invisible matter. Perhaps Hubble Expansion provides an alternative idea worth investigating. Continuous expansion, of about 6.819E-19 % per second (circumference of the observable universe disappearing at light-speed) of all spheres on all scales from Planck’s minimum to the observable universe, attenuates the electro-magnetic field, the stuff of the universe, causing partial temporary vacuums into which the energy field flows to balance the field – acting not unlike the force of gravity.

This in-flow would be invisible, ubiquitous and persistent; it may be the “dark-matter” that mathematicians need to explain the cohesion of spinning galaxies. It is an idea that could be tested.
