A Filament Of WHIM >>

EPISODE #70

AIRED: 06-22-2018

In the “You Cannot Make This Shit up…So THEY Do!” Dept today: Since at least 2011, researchers have suspected that the missing baryonic matter in the Universe might be hiding out in this extrapolated material they have called the warm-hot intergalactic medium (WHIM), but the WHIM is difficult to observe directly. To spot the gas hiding there, they had to come up with a clever trick. “What kind of trick?”, you may be asking. “One for kids?” Tricks ARE for kids, right? Listen here to find out!!
–In a statement, the researchers said they were able to extrapolate from the observed WHIM how much baryonic matter in the form of oxygen floats elsewhere in the universe as the WHIM.
–To validate general relativity outside our solar system for the first time, a research team used strong gravitational lensing, a technique in which a massive object — in this case, a galaxy — acts like a huge lens by bending light so much that the image of a background object, also a galaxy, is distorted. This team of astronomers used the galaxy ESO 325-G004 because it’s one of the closest lenses to Earth, only about 500 million light-years away.
If the two objects are well aligned, this effect creates a ring of images, known as an “Einstein ring,” of the background galaxy. The radius of this ring “is proportional to the deflection of the light,” Collett said, “so if you measure the radius of the ring, you can measure the curvature [of space-time].” He thinks.
–Don’t lose your temper…find out how to …not suppress it, exactly…well…maybe, a little
–Winds on Venus pull the planet up by its own bootstraps as it blows on the sails of the whiled that are like sails…um…yeah.
–What is Tianna? We will find out. It has replaced illegal Kratom in Alabama.
–Memes outlawed?? Thanx, snowflakes!!
