    Our Souls are DarkIt is an increasingly accepted speculation that souls might in fact be made of dark matter According to our latest models, they dark souls condense first and allow life to settle down around them Of course, they can t be detected since they are not detectable by ordinary matter science On death, the souls depart from the body, and can go to heaven cause rebirth via re agglomeration depending on religious practices of the ordinary matter person associated with the soul It Our Souls are DarkIt is an increasingly accepted speculation that souls might in fact be made of dark matter According to our latest models, they dark souls condense first and allow life to settle down around them Of course, they can t be detected since they are not detectable by ordinary matter science On death, the souls depart from the body, and can go to heaven cause rebirth via re agglomeration depending on religious practices of the ordinary matter person associated with the soul It is not yet fully understood how religious practices affect the dark matter core of a ...

    I really enjoy science books that are well written, by a scientist who has personally contributed to the field This book certainly fits into this category, as Lisa Randall is a good writer This book relates some of the research that she and her collaborators have been doing Much of the book sets the stage so that lay readers can understand her speculative new hypothesis, and put it into perspective Randall s hypothesis is that dark matter is not exclusively arranged in a big halo around the I really enjoy science books that are well written, by a scientist who has personally contributed to the field This book certainly fits into this categ...

    Adapted from the Literary Review This book comes garlanded with tributes, headed by the claim Only Lisa Randall can take us on such a thrilling scientific journey I beg to differ Off the top of my head, I can think of half a dozen science writers who could do a better job of describing this particular scientific story and some of them have covered almost all of the material presented here The clue is in the words science writ...

    I have read previous books by Lisa Randall, and liked them well enough, but her new book is in some sense unique, and extraordinary In order to show us how she has come to think that there s a connection between galactic dark matter and Earth s periodic extinctions a somewhat long shot hypothesis she takes us in an amazing tour of our Solar System and the universe, like no other science for the layperson book has ever undertaken It s both a look at how a scientist deeply thinks about ideas a I have read previous books by Lisa Randall, and liked them well enough, but her new book is in some sense unique, and extraordinary In order to show us how she has come to think that there s a connection between galactic dark matter and Earth s periodic extinctions a somewhat long shot hypothesis she takes us in an amazing tour of our Solar System and the universe, like no other scienc...

    Randall offers an exotic hypothesis to explain the demise of the dinosaurs 66 million years ago She argues that the solar system passing through a disk of dark matter in the galactic plane perturbed Oort cloud objects resulting in a large comet crashing into earth She admits the theory is highly speculative and says her real purpose is to share the underlying science To make her case she ties together diverse scientific disciplines including cosmology, particle physics, astronomy, geology and Randall offers an exotic hypothesis to explain the demise of the dinosaurs 66 million years ago She argues that the solar system passing through a disk of dark matter in the ...

    Dark Matter and the Dinosaurs was over my pay grade I m afraid I understand only half of the book completely the rest was an exercise in futility However, it seems up to date and on the cutting edge of theory as much as a non scientist reader like myself, who reads pop science magazines, can comprehend National Academy of Sciences member Lisa Randall s book was published in 2015 Dark Matter and the Dinosaurs , one of many books she has written, recognized for their quality in describing Dark Matter and the Dinosaurs was over my pay grade I m afraid I understand only half of the book completely the rest was an exercise in futility However, it seems up to date and on the cutting edge of theory as much as a non scientist reader like myself, who reads pop science magazines, can comprehend National Academy of Sciences member Lisa ...

    Randall is the first to warn her reader that her new hypothesis is speculative and in need oftesting However, she is excited about the kinds of questions this new direction is taking her Randall has been investigating how dark matter might be involved in not only the creation of matter itself, but possibly in the evolution of humans as well The presence of dark matter is not at all speculative It has been detected using a variety of tools and methods What is speculative is the notion Randall is the first to warn her reader that her new hypothesis is speculative and in need oftesting However, she is excited about the kinds of questions this new direction is taking her Randall has been investigating how dark matter might be involved in not only the creation of matter itself, but possibly in the evolution of humans as well The presence of dark matter is not at all speculative It has been detected using a variety of tools and methods What is speculative is the notion that some dark matter might interact with itself Just as ordinary matter comes in different varieties different sizes, charges, etc dark matter too might come in different varieties, some of which might not make a halo, but rather a dense disc that cuts through the the Milky Way and provides an extra gravitational force that might throw a comet off its trajectory and allow it to plunge toward and into earth, thus changing t...
