According to this theory, dark matter was created by a mysterious impulse after the Big Bang

The black matter is still a pure hypothesis today. Yet it is something that intrigues scientists with its dark side since she would have played an important role in the birth and the expansion of the universe.

Admittedly, we know very little about this mysterious invisible material component of the universe, but thanks to a theory published at the end of last December in Arxiv.org, a new track opens. According to this theory, dark matter comes from an impulse which is said to have occurred shortly after the Big Bang.

An imbalance between matter and antimatter

This impulse would have resulted an imbalance between matter and antimatter, having led to the creation of dark matter. While the Big Bang is a widely accepted theory within the scientific community, this is not yet the case for dark matter.

Researchers believe in particular that at the birth of the universe, matter and antimatter were divided into two equal proportions. But while the two elements should have canceled out, things would have turned out differently. Matter would thus have taken over antimatter.

A new theory

The new theory argues for its part thatan impulse occurred just after the Big Bang. This force would have caused the current imbalance between matter andantimatter. The event would have resulted in the creation of dark matter. And it turns out that it all happened so violent in a fraction of a second.

The pulse would have trapped almost all of the antimatter. The imbalance between baronyque material and baronyque antimatter seems to have engendered a baronyque asymmetry, which has spread throughout the Universe.

A significant part of the mass of the universe

No one knows what is really in dark matter. Science has only taught us that this element that makes up the Universe represents about 80% of its mass. The name comes from the fact that dark matter does not interact with light.

Researchers were able to estimate its mass based on lois de Kepler, Newton’s law of gravity and Albert Enstein’s theory of relativity. Note that these theories can also be used to calculate the mass of galaxies and any celestial body.
