Default Scientists: Earth May Exist in Giant Cosmic Bubble

Scientists: Earth May Exist in Giant Cosmic Bubble

By Clara Moskowitz

Quote:


If the notion of dark energy sounds improbable, get ready for an even more outlandish suggestion.

Earth may be trapped in an abnormal bubble of space-time that is particularly devoid of matter.

Scientists say this condition could account for the apparent acceleration of the universe's expansion, for which dark energy currently is the leading explanation.

Dark energy is the name given to the hypothetical force that could be drawing all the stuff in the universe outward at an ever-increasing rate.

Current thinking is that 74 percent of the universe could be made up of this exotic dark energy, with another 21 percent being dark matter, and normal matter comprising the remaining 5 percent.

Some Scientists claim that hydrogen, because it is so plentiful, is the basic building block of the universe. I dispute that. I say there is more stupidity than hydrogen, and that is the basic building block of the universe. - Frank Zappa

That ref in question, Ed Holuchi, who blew the call vs. Denver, blew another call this past week. Is he losing his mind already? I guess he can look forward to watching the playoffs at home this season, let alone the Super Bowl, of course.
