A link between the Higgs boson and dark energy?

Everyone has heard about it, and physicists are still hunting it: the Higgs boson. This hypothetical particle, which is supposed to give all other particles mass, might also be related to the expansion of the Universe.
Scientists at CERN are still looking for the legendary particle, and it’s probably just a …

Escaping the dark side

As most of you have probably already noticed, I am not particularly fond of the standard model of cosmology… More precisely, I have a problem with dark matter and dark energy, what I call the “dark side” of the Universe. Many times, I was asked why, so I will give …

The best alternative to dark matter and dark energy?

According to the standard model of cosmology, also known as ΛCDM (Lambda Cold Dark Matter) model, about 95% of our Universe is invisible or undetectable, or possibly both. Various alternative models have been proposed to describe our Universe without the need of dark matter or dark energy. One of them, …

Spacetime torsion: The end of major cosmological problems?

A cosmologist has shown that an already existing extension of general relativity may eliminate major problems in gravitational physics, and answer major questions in cosmology.
The Einstein–Cartan–Sciama–Kibble (ECSK) theory of gravity naturally extends general relativity to account for the intrinsic angular momentum (spin) of elementary particles. This theory, named after Albert Einstein, Élie Cartan, Dennis …

Cosmological anomaly in the distant Universe?

Researchers have found that the Universe appears to be clumpier than predicted. This clumpiness, if not due to systematics, might be evidence that the standard model of cosmology needs to be rewritten.
Imagine yourself leaving Earth and looking at it as you are going further and further. You would first see …
