Scientists Have Recorded the Best Dark Matter Signals Ever

You're looking at the best dark matter signal that scientists have ever recorded. Dan Hooper from the Fermi National Laboratory told New Scientist that "this is the most compelling signal we've had for dark matter particles—ever."
The scientists found these extra gamma rays forming a 5,000-light-year sphere around the galactic centre. While some critics suggest the rays could be a result of other celestial bodies—notably a pulsar—Hooper and his colleagues point out that the sphere's size make that unlikely. He explains:
"At this point, there are no known or proposed astrophysical mechanisms or sources that can account for this emission. That doesn't rule out things that no one's thought of yet, but we've tried pretty hard to think of something without success."
The next step, say the researchers, is to spot the same phenomenon with Large Underground Xenon (LUX) detector in South Dakota. [New Scientist]
There was times when cable was important in our lives and allowed us to watch television in home with family or alone, however, today, media streaming devices are replacing cable TV and that is the reason we decided to show you why media streaming devices became so popular. In this particular article we are going to provide you with all relevant information that will provide you perfect idea what we are talking about. Read more
If we say that technology has completely changed the way people live their lives, then this will be a very true statement. Not only has technology contributed in getting knowledge about the human bodies, about our earth and a number of other things, it has also contributed to the field of construction. In the past, the way people used to go about the construction and the methods and machinery that was used in the construction field was totally different than what is being used now. Read more
