    Universe is large – like very large and we all know that. We cannot possibly fathom its total accumulation. However, you’d be shocked to learn that 68 per cent of universe doesn’t even exist.

    A new research hailing from the Eötvös Loránd University suggests that on the basis of simulation, 68 per cent of the universe hasn’t been existing. The study further suggests that it is the ‘dark energy’ that accumulating most of the space.


    “By taking the changing structure of the universe into account, the researchers argue that accelerated expansion can be explained without the need for dark energy – and, in a way that’s consistent with present observations and general relativity,” DailyMail reported.

    “Einstein’s equations of general relativity that describe the expansion of the universe are so complex mathematically, that for a hundred years no solutions accounting for the effect of cosmic structures have been found,” said co-author Dr László Dobos of Eötvös Loránd University.

    “We know from very precise supernova observations that the universe is accelerating, but at the same time we rely on coarse approximations to Einstein’s equations which may introduce serious side-effects, such as the need for dark energy, in the models designed to fit the observational data.”

    The standard model of cosmology indicates that the total mass–energy of the universe contains 4.9% ordinary matter, 26.8% dark matter and 68.3% dark energy. Thus, dark matter constitutes 84.5% of total mass, while dark energy plus dark matter constitute 95.1% of total mass–energy content. The great majority of ordinary matter in the universe is also unseen, since visible stars and gas inside galaxies and clusters account for less than 10% of the ordinary matter contribution to the mass-energy density of the universe.

    So, empirically, only 0.5% of all of matter-energy is seen, rest is unknown and hypothesized.

    Welcome to modern science of cosmology!!
