A visualization of the dark matter halo surrounding a large cluster of galaxies.
Plasma in space usually appears as a cloud of partially charged gas and dust.
When clouds are in motion they become ionized. Clouds in relative motion induce electric currents within them. The currents generate magnetic fields that confine the plasma into coherent filaments known as Birkeland currents.
particles in the currents spiral along the resulting magnetic
fields, appearing as electrical vortices. The forces between these spinning
Birkeland currents pull them close together and wind them around
each other into “plasma ropes”.
Light-years-long jets and
so-called “radio lobes” can extend for many times a galaxy’s
diameter, for example. A circuit is induced within any one galaxy
that causes diffuse electric charge to flow from the galactic poles
toward the galaxy’s equatorial plane and spiral into its nucleus.
Computer simulations played the dominant role.
Minute differences in the models of some galaxies lead them to claim that unseen conglomerations of matter are “bending” space in a phenomenon called “gravitational lensing”. It is that lens effect that holds their hypothesis together.
The intense gravity generated by the
concentrations of invisible (or “dark”) matter is said to cause
light rays from remote objects to bend as if seen through a lens.
However, it is a “weak gravitational lensing” effect, so the slight
variations can only be identified statistically.
Their mathematical inference is that only 4.5% of the matter in the Universe is normal or “baryonic” matter, while 22% is dark matter.
It is often written in the popular press that dark matter makes up a significantly larger percentage of the Universe than normal matter. Accompanying that statement is usually a claim that “dark energy” makes up “75% of the rest of the Universe.”
To anyone familiar with plasma physics, it is well known that plasma makes up 99.99% of the Universe.
It is a fascinating convergence that the
amount of gravitational mass invented to save conventional theories
is the same as the ionized plasma that is overlooked.
