Invisible Space Walls

Space is mysterious and surprising dimensions are unveiled every day, leaving scientists and space enthusiasts perplexed. This time, an astonishing proposal was revealed that could result in a revolution in the laws of astrophysics.

Scientists believe that there may be invisible walls in space, but not like the walls in our homes. Instead, barriers are created by a fifth force mediated by a new hypothetical particle referred to as a Symmetron. Furthermore, this revelation could assist scientists in understanding traditional and challenging aspects of the world of space.

This new aspect of physics could also explain the complicated theories to the conventional model of cosmology, termed Lambda Cold Dark Matter, and could help to reveal the understanding our universe in a better way. Lambda Cold Dark Matter proposes that small galaxies circulate in disorganized orbits of giant galaxies. However, the recent study altered the previous notion, proposing that the smaller galaxies orbit the giant galaxies in a thin flat disc-like shape, similar to those seen in the rings of Saturn, due to the intense gravity of the giant galaxies. 

Furthermore, scientists have discovered several reasonable answers for a problem between theory and reality known as the “satellite disc problem.” According to a new study, a duo of researchers from the University of Nottingham, has addressed what they believe is “the first potential ‘new physics’ interpretation for the studied planes of galaxies that do not do away with dark matter,” referring to the unrecognized particle that comprises the majority of the mass in the universe.

Aneesh Naik, a research companion at the University of Nottingham who spearheaded the work, said the innovative answer came through conversations with particle physics colleagues, including co-author and University of Nottingham physicist Clare Burrage’s research.

“I did my Ph.D. in astronomy, and my thesis was about galactic dynamics and how one might utilize galactic dynamics to address certain fundamental physics problems,” Naik said. “By the time I finished my Ph.D., I was thinking a lot about these small-scale obstacles to Cold Dark Matter.”

“Since we have dark matter and dark energy, we know we need new particles, and we believe we will need to add new particles to our standard model to account for these things.” Anish Naik explained. “It is the setting in which ideas such as symmetry theory are studied.” He went on to say that it is a new candidate particle for dark energy and dark matter. As a result, these particles create invisible barriers. Smaller galaxies can then form discs around much bigger host galaxies due to these barriers.

The Anti-universe

It’s often been suggested that the possibility of a alternative universe could exist, but what about a mirror universe that has an identical twin but lives in a backward time? This may sound like something from Star Trek or Stranger Things, but the theory has recently sparked excitement.

Theories concerning the mirror universe are not recent ideas; there are actually five principal academic theories on the existence of the mirror universe.

In 2016, a study argued for the presence of a mirror universe where time runs backward. As per the theory, our universe has infinite variations where our identical twins exist with minor changes in time. 

In 2017, scientists raised the probability of another universe in response to a cold spot found in space. This spot can be described as a large area that is much more relaxed than the rest of the universe and does not conform to our cosmological models.

With recent technology and a more refined understanding of dimensions, we could be successful at discovering a mirror universe.

Physicists have applied the three fundamental symmetries in nature to the universe. According to the hypothesis, our universe’s twin travels in opposite directions with mirrored coordinates and minor differences. Furthermore, analysis has revealed that the reality of the anti-universe might also help in understanding neutrino particles.

A neutrino is a subatomic particle that resembles an electron. Neutrinos are among the universe’s most prevalent, but unfortunately, they are difficult to detect because they engage with matter in a limited way. This theory has been explained in the journal Annals of Physics.

To date, there are only hypotheses about the particles. Moreover, if we consider that we live in one half of a universe, then new types of neutrinos should also exist. Scientists have discovered six types of neutrinos that exhibit positive and negative spins, but neutrinos with reverse spin should exist for an anti-universe.

However, scientists are not ready to declare the mirror universe a real possibility yet.

According to the experts, these are positive signs for scientists attempting to work out what is going on. Additional investigations with more “access and awareness” will be needed to comprehend the phenomenon comprehensively.

The Coronal Mass Ejection

Earlier this month, the Earth witnessed a dark filament opening up in the Sun’s atmosphere resulting in a coronal mass ejection. As a result, solar activity has increased as we approach another maximum solar epoch. As the plasma filament burst, a “canyon of fire” was driven into the Sun’s surface, 12,400 miles deep and 10 times longer than normal. Furthermore, the geomagnetism storm was strong enough to generate Arctic auroras. This is a fantastic photo opportunity at all times.

At 11am on Sunday, April 3rd, the Sun’s surface erupted into a massive canyon of fire, blasting charged plasma filaments away from it’s surface. The second plasma filament was followed at 5pm on Monday, April 4th. The Met Office in the UK has confirmed that the Sun’s cycle has accelerated, and as a result, plasma is being ejected into space.

In response to the eruption of the coronal mass ejection, a minor geomagnetic storm effected the Earth causing interruption to power networks and influencing satellites.

According to the Met Office, the overactive sunspot that was responsible for the recent burst of activity has now moved away from the Earth allowing the geomagnetic environment to quieten.

According to Nasa, “dangerous radiation from an outburst cannot penetrate through Earth’s atmosphere to physically hurt humans on the land. However, they can disrupt the stratosphere in the layer where GPS and telecommunications waves travel if they are strong enough.”

Fortunately, the geomagnetic storms that hit Earth had a negligible impact on life or technology. When solar wind energy is efficiently transported to the space environment that surrounds the planet, geomagnetic storms occur, causing tremendous disruptions in the planet’s magnetic field and strengthening polar lights, making them visible farther away from the poles than usual. This is because magnetized particles from Coronal Mass Ejections enter directly into the upper orbit where the Earth’s magnetic field is weakest. The colorful lights are caused by the interaction of solar particles with those in the atmosphere.

Although the initial storm has passed, another surprise burst from our hot star could reoccur.

Discovering Endurance

According to open-source data, there are currently approximately 3 million sunken ships at the bottom of the seas and oceans. The majority of them were sunk during war, the second reason owing to poor visibility and other situations, and the third due to old age. One of these was the ship “Endurance,” which sank off the coast of Antarctica in 1915 while being utilized by scientists as part of the Imperial Transantarctic Expedition. Researchers have tried numerous times to locate it, with the most recent attempt being in 2022 which was successful; the old ship was discovered at a depth of more than three kilometers in the Weddell Sea.

Imperial Transantarctic Expedition

In 1914, Endurance commenced service. The Imperial Transantarctic Expedition was organized by Ernest Shackleton, an Anglo-Irish explorer of the polar regions. The research mission’s goal was to traverse Antarctica’s entire landmass. He put together a crew of 56 people, and the Aurora and Endurance ships took them to the South Pole.

Search for the sunken ship Endurance

Many attempts have been made by modern scientists and explorers to determine the exact location of where the ship sank. Their interest stemmed from the fact that the ship should have been well preserved in the frigid waters of Antarctica, where there was no oxygen or light. The Endurance22 mission, which began in early 2022, attempted again to locate the ship. The ship was found in the quickest time feasible by a crew commanded by adventurer John Shears, based on information gathered on previous missions.

The members of the expedition began scanning the region in the Weddell Sea right away. The polar explorers were based on the “Agulhas II,” a South African ship. Saab Sabertooth search vehicles, which are equipped with sensors, lights, and cameras, were utilized to scan the seabed. The ship was discovered at a depth of 3008 meters after a brief search. The recovered vessel is well preserved, according to British maritime archaeologist Mensun Bound, which is exactly what the experts expected. The ship “Endurance” is now a historical landmark and a monument.

Today, millions of sunken ships lay at the bottom of the seas and oceans. Scientists consider them to be “time capsules” that may teach a lot about the lives of individuals from different historical periods by looking at them. Ancient Greek and Roman wrecks are particularly noteworthy because they frequently contain statues and other pieces of art. As a result, the famed Antikythera Youth statue was discovered in 1900, not far from the Greek island of Antikythera.

The New Great Wall of China

The Chinese are reportedly building a gigantic new wall to supposedly keep Covid away. Yes as ridiculous as it sounds, the Chinese seem to want to make Covid pay for it.

Reports have circulated that the Chinese government is constructing a 2,000-kilometer armored fence along its Myanmar border, mainly due to the rise in COVID-19 cases in the latter country. According to the Radio Free Asia (RFA) report, 659 kilometers of the barricade have already been completed. The reports have been confirmed by images on social media that show armor-plated steel fences topped with barbed wire. This massive project has been named the “Southern Great Wall” and the construction began in 2020 after the outbreak of the virus.

Some newspapers referred to it as the “Anti Covid Great Wall’’ but experts believe that there could be some hidden agenda behind this new border situation. The Chinese government has always struggled to retain control of Yunnan’s border with Myanmar which is nearly 2,200-kilometers. Since the 1980s this border has worked as a channel for illegal trades like drug trafficking, stolen vehicles, and illegitimate capital flow. It also allowed the undocumented flow of people into China that included day traders, migrant workers, and smuggled women.

Due to its loosely policed and mostly unmonitored borders, the south west province of Yunnan has been known to provide asylum to ethnic Uyghurs and others that used it as an outlet as per their convenience. Previously, the authorities and Chinese police have taken several actions to shut down border casinos in Laos and Myanmar that have been set up to enchant Chinese gamblers. Chinese authorities also mount periodic crackdowns on the flow of cross-boundary illegal imports. This longstanding concern has likely only been reinforced by the risk of Corona Virus recurring in China through the backdoor

The construction of a new Great Wall to curb the spread of Covid-19 might seem like overkill, however, China seems to achieve multiple goals through its new border. The West however claims that the Chinese government has ulterior motives and they are trying to achieve the status of ‘super power’ at the expense of its less fortunate neighbors. 

The pandemic has provided the Chinese government with a solid reason to resolve its long-established border issues. It may sound simple but in reality, the Chinese government wants to control everything including illicit trade across its borders. Certainly, they don’t want to put an end to any of it but only want to make sure everything happens on their terms.

Mega Drought

In the previous two decades, the American west has been subjected to the most extreme mega drought in at least 1,200 years, according to scientists. Human-caused climate change is cited as a major factor in the current devastating conditions in a recently released study, and the researchers predict that more drier decades lie ahead.

Park Williams, a climate scientist at the University of California, Los Angeles and the study’s lead author, says, “Anyone who has been paying attention knows that the west has been dry for most of the last two decades.”

Human-caused global warming has played a significant role in raising the temperature. In other studies, researchers have found that the climate problem “will increasingly boost the likelihood of lengthy, widespread and severe mega droughts. This worst-case scenario already looks to be coming to pass,” according to a report from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

It expands on a previous study, also led by Williams, which found that the decade from 2000 to 2018 was the second driest in the past 12,000 years of record-keeping. However, 2021 – 2022’s record-breaking heat, dwindling reservoirs, and increase in dangerously unpredictable and uncontrollable fires were worse still.

Researchers from UCLA, NASA, and Columbia University studied soil moisture levels in landscapes stretching from Montana to northern Mexico and from the Pacific Ocean north to the Rocky Mountains. They looked at tree ring patterns to figure out how much moisture was in the soil over time. Stunted development patterns can be seen in the rings where they appear closer together.

Researchers discovered that mega droughts, which are extended periods of dryness lasting more than two decades, are woven into history. Water availability fluctuated across time, even before humans began using it for industrial purposes. The climate catastrophe, on the other hand, has exacerbated this variability. In the last 22 years, soil moisture deficiencies have doubled compared to the 1900s, according to their research. More than 40% of the rise in severity was caused by humans.

The researchers are concerned that the West is reaching a tipping point in its rising trajectory. It’s been shown in numerous studies that human-caused global warming and drought are linked, and that these climate calamities compound over time. Heat waves are expected to grow in size, intensity, and frequency in the coming years, according to a substantial body of research. This study, on the other hand, provides information that shows how quickly and steeply these changes are taking place in the context of history.

There are many experts and campaigners who think this will be a wake-up call to prepare for a future that is quickly becoming reality. Unsustainable systems are already showing signs of weakness. A declining water bank account, Williams explains, “means that our spending must be curtailed before the account goes dry.”
