Our galaxy, the Milky Way, is being pushed into space by an invisible force, according to new research published in Nature. Scientists have discovered something called the Dipole Repeller, which could explain our galaxy’s movement in space.
Shapley gravity area
Scientists have found that everything in the universe is moving. The Earth is orbiting its axis and orbiting the Sun. The Sun and the rest of the Solar System rotate around the center of the Milky Way galaxy. The Milky Way, along with other galaxies in the Laniakea Galaxies, travels together in space at a speed of 2 million km / h (more than 630 km / sec).
The Laniakea galaxy cluster contains thousands of galaxies, including our own Milky Way galaxy
But that is not an uncertain journey. Researchers have long believed that our galaxy is attracted to a dense region of galaxies that are 750 million light-years away, called the Shapley Focus Point or the Shapley Gravity Area.
“Normally, galaxies fly apart because of the expansion of the universe,” said Tully. “However, each galaxy is subjected to a gravitational pull from neighboring galaxies that lead to deflection movements – heading closer to the higher density regions and away from the lower density regions. Our solar system is a tiny part of a galaxy called the Milky Way. Because our Milky Way is also participating in the flow, we are moving. ”
But not only is traction, scientists also discovered thrust …
Detecting Bipolar Propulsion from Galactic Stream
With the help of large telescopes, the researchers created a three-dimensional map of the galactic flow. Galaxies like our own Milky Way drift along the distribution of matter, so they tend to drift away from empty, sparse areas in space and toward regions with a lot of matter.
By creating a flow map, researcher Brent Tully and his colleagues discovered the Dipole Repeller.
“We discovered a flow pattern similar to the image of the water created by gravity,” Tully said. “Specifically, we performed a mathematical trick by reversing gravity to see where the currents ended. The currents end at the Bipolar Propulsion. ”
Bright and concentrated bright galaxies, creating the pull of the Shapley Gravity Area. Now researchers believe that the Milky Way is not just being pulled. It is receiving a thrust from a cosmic void behind the Milky Way.
Because the Bipolar Propulsion is low in density, with only a few galaxies in its large void, this region acts as a repulsion. The universe is full of gravitational and repulsive regions, but the brightness of gravitational regions is more easily detected. Due to the low density, the pushing areas appear to be empty spaces, regardless of their size.
“Now that we have found a space in the opposite direction, it creates a ‘repulsion’ in the sense that there is no traction,” according to Brent Tully. He said. “Just like in a tug of war, if one head has more people then the rope will be pulled there and away from the weaker head.”
Explanation of the Bipolar Propulsion
Imagine that you have a universe in which the density of matter is uniform. In all directions, in all positions, the universe is filled with matter with the same density. If you place a material at a certain distance to the left, you will be attracted to the left by gravity.
But if you put some material on the right hand side, you will also be attracted to the left hand. In a completely homogeneous universe, you will be attracted by equal forces from all directions. But if you remove some material from a certain direction, its attraction will not be as strong as before, then you will be attracted to the opposite direction.
The concept of bipolar is very common in the field of electromagnetism, where we know that the cathode will have gravity and the anode will have repulsion. If you imagine the Bipolar Propulsion according to this concept, the cathode will be the region with more material and the anode will be the area with less material, so it will create the traction that leads to Super’s motion. galaxy clusters.
Bipolar concept in electromagnetic fields
Scientists have had a hard time finding low-density regions of the universe, because regions of medium physical density and low-density regions are quite far from our Milky Way galaxy. . However, with the discovery of the Bipolar Propulsion, it appears to contribute 50% to the motion of our Galaxy Super Cluster.
New Zealand once gave a human rights river, now it reaches a mountain
Mount Taranaki in New Zealand has been given human rights and became the third geographic entity in this country to be given a “legal status.”
Eight indigenous Maori tribes and the government will share the guardianship of this sacred mountain on the west coast of the North Island. According to the Maori beliefs, they considered the mountain as ancestors and family members, so they had campaigned for years to bring the law closer to their beliefs.
Recently, in March 2017, the Maori tribe in the North Island also successfully persuaded New Zealand law to grant the Whanganui river human rights.
According to the signed document, the mountain will have “legal status, autonomy,” according to Andrew Little, the minister in charge of negotiating treaties with the Maori tribe. Taranaki Mountain has the same rights as the Whaganui River.
According to the new position of Mount Taranaki, if someone harms the mountain also means legally, they are harming the Maori tribe.
Mount Taranaki in New Zealand has been given human rights
These recognition decisions will provide the best protection for the mountain, which is becoming famous day by day when Lonely Planet has rated it as the second most visited place in the world in 2016.
Also under the agreement, the New Zealand government will apologize to the local Māori people for past violations of the mountain. However, there will be no financial compensation for this.
According to Gerrard Albert, who was involved in negotiating human rights for the Whaganui River, all Maori tribes see themselves as part of the universe, in harmony and on par with rivers, mountains and Ocean. “We are not the owners of the natural world, but only a part of it,” he said.
Taranaki is 120,000 years old and is a volcano that has deactivated with the most perfect structure in New Zealand. The last time it erupted was 1775. It is thought to be the most explored and visited mountain in the country.
