"Mike around the world" an obvious pseudonym to protect the identity of this retired defense contractor, speaking to Pastor Paul Begley about the implications, uses and characteristics of dark matter. Galaxies in our universe seem to be achieving an impossible feat. They are rotating with such speed that the gravity generated by their observable matter could not possibly hold them together; they should have torn themselves apart long ago. The same is true of galaxies in clusters, which leads scientists to believe that something they cannot see is at work. They think something we have yet to detect directly is giving these galaxies extra mass, generating the extra gravity they need to stay intact. They call this mysterious stuff dark matter.
Unlike normal matter, dark matter does not interact with the electromagnetic force. This means it does not absorb, reflect or emit light, making it extremely hard to spot. In fact, scientists have been able to infer the existence of dark matter only from the gravitational effect it seems to have on visible matter.
Dark matter seems to outweigh visible matter roughly five to one, making up more than 80% of all the matter in the universe.
Mike discusses the weaponization of anti-matter and the spiritual implications of dark matter.
