This illustration shows how the Hubble Space Telescope searches for missing baryons or normal matter, by looking at the light from quasars several billion light-years away. In an extensive search of the local universe, astronomers say they have definitively found about half of the missing normal matter, called baryons, in the spaces between the galaxies. (NASA/ESA/A. Feild - STScI/Handout/Reuters)

"...This shock heats it to a million degrees. That makes it even harder to see."

We need to educate the public--kids could touch it and get a nasty burn! Quick--give me a grant!

Astronomers have found some matter that had been missing in deep space and say it is strung along web-like filaments

Those pesky Tholians are at it again!

So it just “shows up” just after the statute of limitations expires?

Big Wow from one freeper !


It just so happens I built the rocket harness and avionics guidance boards for that particular research "sounder" rocket for CASA (Colorado Astrophysics Space Administration).
I was present when they installed the FUSE camera system and mirrors and when they put in the companion (toy soldier) in the nose section for good luck. It was strapped in with tie wraps and the weight distribution had to not unballance the payload.

Hey, now that we’re finding all of this missing matter, could I please have some of it back? I know that I keep losing things, I just didn’t know where to find them.....

could account for up to half the matter that scientists knew must be there but simply could not see

Believing in something they cannot see ... Superstitious Neanderthals.

"Dark matter has gravity. It pulls the gas in," Shull said. "This causes what I call sonic booms -- shock waves. This shock heats it to a million degrees. That makes it even harder to see."

So now we know the true culprit for global warming.

Paging Dr. Gore!

It’s probably the grey matter that went missing from my brain after I had my kids. I wonder if it will go in the lost and found for reclaiming.
