Stars made of dark matter could explain the amazing discoveries made by the James Webb Space Telescope.
What is dark energy?
You, me and everything around us are made of A normal issueA normal issueWhat we are made of – such as protons, neutrons and electrons. Everything we can see and feel, from stars and planets to plants, animals and rocks, is “ordinary matter.”. But we are the exception. Because “ordinary matter” is not natural at all. They make up only an estimated 5 percent of everything in the universe. The remainder is dark matter (27 percent) and dark energy (68 percent).
But we know little about this dark side of the world.
Aftenposten recently wrote that researchers using the James Webb Space Telescope have discovered several galaxies that appear to be “fully developed” already 3 to 400 million years after the beginning of the universe, or the Big Bang, 13.8 billion years ago.
But there’s a problem: based on the current understanding of the laws of physics, galaxies shouldn’t be there.
Now some researchers think they have an explanation. It’s about so-called dark matter.
