Mazure A., Le Brun V. Matter, Dark Matter, and Anti-Matter: In Search of the Hidden Universe
Springer Science and Business Media, 2012, 172 pages, ISBN: 1441988211

For over ten years, the dark side of the universe has been headline news. Detailed studies of the rotation of spiral galaxies, and 'mirages' created by clusters of galaxies bending the light from very remote objects, have convinced astronomers of the presence of large quantities of dark (unseen) matter in the cosmos. The most striking fact is that they seem to compromise about 95% of the matter/energy content of the universe. As for ordinary matter, although we are immersed in a sea of dark particles, including primordial neutrinos and photons from fossil cosmological radiation, both we and our environment are made of ordinary, 'baryonic' matter. Authors Mazure and Le Brun present the inventory of matter, baryonic and exotic, and investigating the nature and fate of matter's twin, anti-matter. They show how technological progress has been a result of basic research, in tandem with the evolution of new ideas, and how the combined effect of these advances might help lift the cosmic veil.

Недавние открытия в астрономии, особенно сделанные с данными, собранными спутниками, такими как Космический телескоп Хабблa и WMAP (прим.: WMAP – космический зонд НАСА для изучения реликтового излучения), реконструировали науку о космологии. Эти новые наблюдения дают возможность того, что на некоторые давние тайны космологии может быть найден ответ, включая такие фундаментальные вопросы, как конечная...
