A Laymans View of Dark Energy and Real Space
I am confused. Scientists now say that the universe is still expanding and that the only possibility for this to be able to happen, is that there must be the existence of some kind of invisible force. They call this dark energy.
They also say, that when we escape earth’s atmosphere, we have zero gravity.
OK, so if zero gravity is enough to keep the planets in orbit around the sun, then reaching a place that is free from the suns pull must be negative 1, gravity. Now, if a negative 1, gravity is enough to keep the stars orbiting the center of the Galaxy, when you escape the Galaxy’s pull, you must be at negative 2, gravity.
A negative is the opposite of a positive. So, to me, negative 2, gravity, must be an anti gravity.
If real space, that space between Galaxies, is anti gravity, then of course the Galaxies will push away from each other. As more real space gets between them, then they will move apart faster.
If the above was true, then dark energy is not a mysterious enigma, it is space itself, the real universe.
Scientists are, only now, studying probes about to leave our solar system. They have not yet had the opportunity to study anything from outside of our solar system, let alone our Galaxy. This means they can only speculate as to what is out there.
I know that it is a scientist’s job to theorize on the little known facts. Do they though, blinker themselves when they have a possible theory? Continually trying to bring, that one theory, to an ultimate conclusion. Even though they may think they have found a correct theory they should keep their minds open, continuing to search for other possible theories, until one is proven, beyond doubt, to be the correct one.
