A ‘dark matter’ hurricane that we can’t see or hear is blasting past Earth, and it’s one of the universe’s biggest conundrums
A fast hurricane of dark matter is approaching Earth at 310 miles per second, according to astronomers.
Very little is known about this occurrence, since the lightweight dark matter can’t be seen nor felt.
Scientists can only prove that the dark matter exists based on the movement and placement of a stellar stream, which has the fainting remnants of a smaller galaxy engulfed by the Milky Way.
Astronomers hypothesize that dark matter is traveling with the stellar stream through our solar system.
They also note that this dark matter won’t cause any harm to Earth.
If astronomers’ calculations are correct, the Solar System is right in the middle of a turbulent space event: a vast ‘hurricane’ of dark matter, blowing at an insane speed of 500 kilometres per second (310 mps).
We can’t see it, and we can’t feel it – but it could mean that a direct detection of dark matter is closer than we thought.See the rest of the story at Business Insider
