This e-book exhibits how smooth cosmology and astronomy have ended in the necessity to introduce darkish topic within the universe. a few of this darkish subject is within the popular kind of protons, electrons and neutrons, yet so much of it should have a extra unique shape. The favoured, yet no longer the one, risk is neutrinos of non-zero relaxation mass, pair-created within the scorching titanic bang and surviving to the current day. After a evaluate of contemporary cosmology, this ebook offers a close account of the author's fresh idea within which those neutrinos decay into photons that are the most ionising brokers in hydrogen and nitrogen within the interstellar and intergalactic medium. This thought, although speculative, explains a few particularly diversified complicated phenomena in astronomy and cosmology in a unified manner and predicts values of assorted very important amounts corresponding to the mass of the decaying neutrino and the Hubble consistent. Written via a cosmologist of the 1st rank, this topical booklet can be crucial examining to all cosmologists and astrophysicists.

Contemporary discoveries in astronomy, specially these made with facts gathered by means of satellites corresponding to the Hubble area Telescope and the Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe, have revolutionized the technology of cosmology. those new observations provide the chance that a few long-standing mysteries in cosmology will be replied, together with such primary questions because the final destiny of the universe.
CP violation is an interesting and elusive topic, and present wisdom of it continues to be restricted, on either the experimental and theoretical degrees. Researchers lack a basic knowing of its starting place, and this can be the entire extra very important simply because CP violation is expounded to the iteration challenge and mass challenge, of the fundamental open questions in particle physics.
