It makes up most of the universe, yet hardly anything is known about the so-called Dark Energy that envelopes us.
The unusual ‘something’ – one of the great mysteries of cosmology – is believed to be an unknown force that is pushing things apart more strongly than gravity and causing the universe’s expansion to accelerate.
Now, scientists from Imperial College London believe they may finally have an explanation for the source of unknown energy — black holes.
Dr Chris Pearson, study co-author, said: ‘If the theory holds, then this is going to revolutionise the whole of cosmology.
‘At last we’ve got a solution for the origin of dark energy that’s been perplexing cosmologists and theoretical physicists for more than 20 years.’link w video
