  • Dark Matter In The Universeby John Bahcall; Tsvi Piran; Steven Weinberg

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 189.00

    If standard gravitational theory is correct, then most of the matter in the universe is in an unidentified form which does not emit enough light to have been detected by current instrumentation.

  • Dark Sky, Dark Matterby J.M Overduin; P.S Wesson

    Taylor and Francis 2002; US$ 231.00

    Olbers' paradox states that given the Universe is unbounded, governed by the standard laws of physics, and populated by light sources, the night sky should be ablaze with light. Obviously this is not so. However, the paradox does not lie in nature but in our understanding of physics. A Universe with a finite age, such as follows from big-bang theory,... more...
