We’ll let Veritasium explain..

In our eagerness to identity the Universe’s occult phenomena of dark energy and dark matter, we often forget that most of its better defined particles also seem to be MIA.
Relax. We now have our first solid piece of evidence that this matter has been hiding in the delicate threads of cosmic webbing bridging neighbouring galaxies, right where the models predicted.

“In 2010, Erik Verlinde surprised the world with a completely new theory of gravity. According to Verlinde, gravity is not a fundamental force of nature, but an emergent phenomenon. In the same way that temperature arises from the movement of microscopic particles, gravity emerges from the changes of fundamental bits of information, stored in the very structure of spacetime.”

One of the weirder aspects of quantum mechanics could be explained by an equally weird idea – that causation can run backwards in time as well as forwards.
What Einstein called “spooky” action at a distance could theoretically be evidence of retrocausality, which is the particle equivalent of you getting a stomach ache today thanks to tomorrow’s bad lunch.

Usually, astronomers hunt for exoplanets—planets that exist outside of our own solar system—in search of those that have the conditions to host extraterrestrial life. But sometimes, they just want to see what else is out there. That was the case when astronomers from Ohio State and Vanderbilt universities discovered the KELT-9 star system 650 light…
Fraser Cain speaks to Sarah Pearson (Space with Sarah) about dark matter and whether there could be small dark matter galaxies that we haven’t yet detected. A fascinating insight into the ongoing studies of the mysterious stuff that accounts for most of all matter in the universe.
