Fg indicates the force, a indicates the acceleration
A fascinating new paper released today suggest that both dark matter and dark energy can be explained by a single phenomenon – particles of matter with negative mass. I give a link to the paper below, but I will attempt a quick layman’s explanation.
Fundamentally, orthodox positive-mass attracts other positive-mass, and negative-mass would repel other negative-mass. The interesting part is the interaction between positive-mass and negative-mass particles. The positive-mass particle is repelled, but the negative-mass particle is attracted i.e. the positive-mass ‘runs away’ but the negative-mass ‘follows’.
The scientist behind this new theory, has run computer simulations which show that a galaxy would indeed become surrounded by a halo of negative mass particles, and that this halo would exert a kind of pressure on the orthodox matter galaxy, maintaining, for example, its spiral shape in rotation. This is important because it is understood…
