There is strong indirect evidence of its existence from cosmic primary radiation measurements, discrepancies in the radial dependence of the galactic rotation curves.
And gravitational lenses. Despite its apparent role in the universe, the physical origin of dark matter remains unknown.
Two theoretical physicists from the University of York, United Kingdom, have a new candidate.
The recently discovered Bosonic particle, D * (2380) Hexquar. Simulation of the large-scale structure of the universe with dark matter fibers in blue and galaxy-forming locations in yellow.
D * (2380) The hexaquar is composed of six quarks, which are basic particles that generally combine into three to form protons and neutrons.
Importantly, six quarks in a D * (2380) result from a boson particle, which means that when there are multiple D * (2380) they can be combined in very different ways for protons and neutrons.
Dr. from the University of York MIKL Bashkonov and Professor Daniel Vats suggest that in the conditions immediately following the Big Bang.
And several hexquak D * (2380) could be grouped as the universe cooled and expanded to constitute the fifth state of The matter. Condensate Hua Bose-Einstein.
“The origin of Dark Matter in the Universe is one of the most important questions in science and one that, so far, is an empty question,” said Professor Watts.
“Our first calculations indicate that Hexaquark condensate (2380) is a new viable phenomenon for dark matter.”
“This new result is particularly exciting because it does not require any new concept for physics.”
“The next step in establishing this new Dark Matter Candidate will be to better understand D * (2380) Hexquax’s conversations about when they are attracted and when they repeat themselves,” said Dr. Bashkanov said.
“We are leading new measurements to make hexaquarks d * (2380) within an atomic nucleus and see if their properties differ when they are in free space.”
