We know what 4% of the Universe is made of. But what about the rest?

There was a time, not so long ago, when science seemed to understand how the universe worked. Everything – us, the Earth, the stars and even exotic-sounding supernovae – was made of atoms which were all created at time-zero: the Big Bang. In between the atoms was nothing, a void: quite literally, ‘space’.

But recently things have started to unravel. There is, it seems, a lot more to the universe than meets the eye.

    100% of this video is missing

    • Johnny

      So is 100% of any scientific honesty missing based solely on the description. Hopefully this video starts working for me at some time and I’ll be proven wrong.

      Addressing the subject itself – based on the theory that gravity is a constant and dominates the universe it was discovered that spiral galaxies only had 4% of the required visible mass to allow for their rotational speeds according to gravitational theory.

      And stars on the outer edges of the arms of the galaxies rotate at the same speed as stars closer to the center, which is not possible with such a small amount of mass involved.

      So the theory of gravity fails completely in dealing with these observations.

      What to do, what to do?

      I know, we’ll just assume that our theory is right despite all the evidence against it and that it is the universe that is wrong!

      Thus our theory of gravitational domination remains in tact as long as 96% of the matter in the universe is invisible “dark matter”.

      Genius, pure genius.

      Forget that plasma experiments using electricity have reproduced formations almost identical to spiral galaxies(and other forms) which behave almost exactly the way the real galaxies have been observed to behave, including the outer arms rotating at the same speed as the inner arms.

      But I have been told by many “experts” that there is no way in hell the universe is so crazy as to use plasma and electricity to form galaxies when electricity is only 38+ orders of magnitude more powerful than gravity(100,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 x gravity) and plasma is known to be the dominant state of matter in the universe.

      Apparently believing 96% of the universe is invisible/undetectable is perfectly sane, while believing that laboratory experiments which almost identically reproduce the natural observations without requiring 96% of the universe to be invisible are completely insane.

      Maybe it’s just 96% of the brain matter of the leading scientists involved in this research field that is missing?

      Whether you agree with them or not you have to admit that considering 96% of the universe to be invisible is one hell of a massive assumption which has little to do with science, it’s science-fiction at best.

        Hey Johnny…I dont know if you are around….what will happen if they can not cool down the nuclear power plant in Japan?

        • Johnny

          Yep I am around as I decided to take a weekend for myself and just stay home and relax, though I doubt I will be around here too much unless I get really bored.

          I am not an expert on nuclear reactors or their design specifications but more than likely if they can’t get the cooling system working properly again the increasing heat will produce more and more radioactive steam that will build up within the plant until it can no longer contain it and radiation will begin spreading outward. Last I heard the one room at the plant was already over 1,000x greater than normal radiation levels.

          Again I’m not entirely sure of the set-up there but in some systems as the coolant evaporates and exposes the fuel rods there could be fires and explosions as well caused by the extreme heat given off.

          The worst case scenario would probably be another ‘Level 7′ event like Chernobyl where explosions and fires produce large plumes of radioactive smoke that can spread for hundreds or even thousands of miles.

          But there has been only one ‘Level 7′ event(Chernobyl) in the history of the nuclear age while there have been many smaller events, so it’s unlikely that this event in Japan will be that substantial in my view. But not impossible either.

          Hopefully they can get something done to fix the situation but if not you’ll have a more precise answer to your question in the not so distant future.

          But on a side note – this is one of the reasons I don’t like nuclear power, all it takes is one earthquake and the system can go into ‘doom’ mode and cause serious problems for people and the environment.

          Nuclear power is only truly safe if we have control over Mother Earth, and that we certainly do not(minus some HAARP weather control conspiracy theories).

          I have a feeling the seismic vulnerability of nuclear power plants will become a much bigger issue over the next 15 years or so.

            Thanks for the info Johnny.

            I thought I heard on NPR on my way home that this particular plant is either the oldest or one of the oldest nuclear power plants that Japan has. I wonder if that makes a difference in the reliability of the plant or maybe they continually “bring things up to code” throughout the years and it would be comparable to a newer plant. I guess it doesnt matter much now.

            I think you are right, we may know very soon as to the extent of the damage. Do you think Japan would “cover up” or delay getting information out to the world as to what the situation really is regarding any radiation leakage?

            Well, glad to hear you are taking time to relax, hope you enjoy the weekend. Ellie.

            Update as of yesterday:

            “(Reuters) – Japan raised the severity of its nuclear crisis at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant to a level 7 from 5, putting it on par with the Chernobyl nuclear disaster in 1986.”

            http://uk.reuters.com/article/2011/04/12/japan-severity-idUKTKE00635720110412

            Supposedly it is due to more radiation being released initially than they had thought(lied about), not due to any current increase in trouble.

            And supposedly things are ‘slowly stabilizing’ and “the emission of radioactive substances is on a declining trend”, though the way they’ve been spinning the whole coverage it’s anyone’s guess what that actually means.

            It could just mean that they have managed to control/stop the radioactive water dumping into the sea while everything else is just as bad as before.

            I do love the spin though – things are slowly stabilizing and there is a ‘declining trend’ in radioactive leaking so now is the time to put the disaster behind us and start thinking about rebuilding.

            The crises is far from over but who needs to worry about that any longer?

            ‘Japan says nuclear crisis stabilizing, time to rebuild’ -

            http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/04/12/us-japan-idUKTRE72A0SS20110412

            I love this paragraph:

            “TEPCO appears to be no closer to restoring cooling systems at the reactors, critical to lowering the temperature of overheated nuclear fuel rods.

            On Tuesday, Japan’s science ministry said small amounts of strontium, one of the most harmful radioactive elements, had been found in soil near Fukushima Daiichi.”

            So the fuel rods are still overheated, new highly radioactive elements are being discovered contaminating the nearby environment, and the radiation leaking from the plant is in a ‘declining trend’.

            As far as nuclear disasters go I’m sure it really is quite stable, but stabilizing it doesn’t mean it is anywhere near over as the spin-doctors in the Japanese government are implying.

            Until the cooling systems are fixed things can not be called ‘stable’, and ‘slowly stabilizing’ indicates it probably will still be a while before ‘stable’ is actually reached.

            And once ‘stable’ is reached there is a lot more work to do yet.

          • Johnny

            Just to clarify – nuclear power plants built in active earthquake regions are typically built pretty well, and the fact that Japan is one of the more active regions in the world is a good testament to the quality of their systems, that there aren’t a lot more problems than what have actually occurred is somewhat impressive.

            My main concern are the regions that are susceptible to earthquakes but which are not typically high activity regions where often not nearly as much seismic consideration is shown.

            And even the stronger facilities built with quakes in mind still only require one good quake to cause problems, nothing mankind can construct can survive the awesome power of Mother Earth when shes gets into one of those moods.

            But anyways, although I’m sure the plant in Japan has been upgraded over the years if it is an older facility the core systems and structure likely would not have been touched unless in serious need of repair or replacement, it’s mainly the control systems and safety systems that are upgraded on a regular basis as opposed to the core structure which is most susceptible to seismic activity.

            And no, I don’t think they would try to cover it up, something so big isn’t going to stay covered up for long no matter how hard they could try so it wouldn’t be worth the effort in my opinion.

            That doesn’t mean they won’t actually try though or that the media in the west won’t put the “spin” to the story if and when necessary to assist powerful nuclear interest groups in maintaining support for nuclear energy though.

            And thanks, hope you enjoy your weekend too.
