Found the missing half of the Universe

An worldwide group of scientists the study have discovered the missing 50 percent of the visible matter in the Universe.

This matter was presumed to occupy the space between galaxies, and was called baryonic matter.

So there was comprehensible delirium when it transpired that two distinct teams of researchers may have discovered this "missing" baryonic matter.

The community of scientist has always been hunting for a link to the missing matter of universe that is mysterious thing throughout the planet and gravitational pull. Astronomers discovered the missing baryons among strands of hot, diffuse gas linking the universe's galaxies together - the faintest portions of what's known as the cosmic web.

Models of space claim there should be twice as much regular matter - made up of protons, electrons and neutrons - in space as previous observations have found.

One team, led by researchers from the University of British Columbia, found out that density of these filaments is just under three times the average density of baryons in the surrounding void. Both teams of researchers used the Sunyaev-Zel'dovich effect concept and used data on pairs of galaxies taken from catalogs in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey.

"The missing baryon problem is solved", astronomer Hideki Tanimura told New Scientist.

Some of the light scatters as it collides with the gases particles, leaving a tiresome patch in the cosmic microwave background.

The arguments of scientists based on the analysis of data obtained from the orbiting Planck Observatory, which is created to study the cosmic microwave background. This phenomenon allowed the researchers to see strands of matter that are normally far too dim to observe. He said that half of baryons (missing baryons) are deemed to thrive in filament structures between dark matter halos as dispersed gas, WHIM (warm hot intergalactic medium).

One group found filaments six times denser than the other, but further analysis suggests the discrepancy can be explained by the fact that some Planck renderings were recorded at varying distances.

Dr. Ralph Kraft, an astrophysicist from the Harvard-Smithsonian Center of Astrophysics at MA in US State, explained that, "Everybody sort of knows that it has to be there, but this is the first time that somebody - two different groups, no less - has come up with a definitive detection".

Tanimura's paper has been submitted for publication in the Monthly Notices for the Royal Astronomical Society, while de Graaff's has been submitted to the Nature journal.

Ralph Kraft, from the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics in MA, said the findings help align the discrepancy between observations and simulations of the universe.
