By Gianfranco Bertone

a unprecedented discovery has lately shaken the principles of Cosmology and Particle Physics, sparking a systematic revolution that has profoundly transformed our realizing of our Universe and that's nonetheless faraway from over. Pioneering astronomers within the Twenties and Thirties had already spotted suspicious anomalies within the movement of celestial our bodies in far-off galaxies and clusters of galaxies, however it wasn't till the overdue twentieth century that the clinical neighborhood was
confronted with an magnificent end: the Universe is stuffed with an unknown, elusive substance that's essentially diversified from whatever we now have ever visible with our telescopes or measured in our laboratories. it really is known as darkish topic, and it constitutes some of the most urgent demanding situations of
modern science.

In this e-book, aimed toward the overall reader with an curiosity in technological know-how, the writer illustrates in non-technical phrases, borrowing recommendations and ideas from different branches of artwork and literature, the far-reaching implications of this discovery. It has resulted in a global race to spot the character of this mysterious type of topic. We could be approximately to witness a pivotal paradigm shift in Physics, as we got down to attempt the lifestyles of darkish subject debris with a big selection of experiments, including
the huge Hadron Collider at CERN, in addition to with a brand new iteration of Astroparticle experiments underground and in space.

Vedere, guardare: Dal microcosmo alle stelle, viaggio by Piero Bianucci PDF

Un sottile pennello di luce unisce ogni stella al nostro occhio. Un ponte fisico, fatto di fotoni, attraverso cui transitano tutte le informazioni che giungono a noi dall’universo. Percorrerlo significa sfiorare los angeles trama che tiene insieme, attraverso lo spazio e il pace, ogni fibra dell’esistente, da R Doradus, los angeles stella più grande del cielo – oltre 500 milioni di chilometri di diametro – alle particelle subatomiche studiate al CERN di Ginevra; dal proto-occhio del verme preistorico Platynereis dumerilii, comparso 545 milioni di anni fa, al telescopio spaziale James Webb, in orbita a partire dal 2018.
