New study says space is full of grease!!

Along with being huge, bitterly cold and dark, space is also quite greasy. A recent research conducted by a group of international researchers has pointed out to this new finding. The team reportedly developed materials having properties that are similar to interstellar dust. The final composition resembled to be grease. The study’s researchers even inferred that the Milky Way has rich deposits of “space grease.”

The researchers at the Ege University in Turkey and the University of New South Wales in Sydney (UNSW), who were involved in this study, focused on the fourth most typical element present in our universe, carbon. Around 0.5 of the carbon present in space is considered as pure. The rest of the carbon is characterized into 2 parts on the basis of chemistry. One is reportedly a sort of association that resembles a mothball, known conventionally as aromatic carbon. The other one resembles nothing but grease known generally as aliphatic carbon.

The carbon that is present in interstellar dust is considered as the outpour of “carbon stars,” which is a huge red body that comprises of more amount of carbon as compared to the quantity of oxygen. The violent stellar winds usually blow away around 0.5 of the carbon star’s entire mass giving rise to interstellar dust.

This dust reportedly helps in the formation and growth of the Universe by bringing in materials and components that are responsible for the evolution of stars in the future. An important point to be noted is that interstellar dust has potential abilities to travel remarkably.

The researchers rebuilt it in the lab by keeping plasma comprising carbon compounds inside vacuum at a standard minimum temperature. No sooner did the material got collected than the researchers involved in the study used magnetic resonance along with spectroscopy to analyze the quantity of the material, which ingested infrared rays of a specific frequency.

Around hundred greasy “carbon atoms” were found per million hydrogen atoms. This signified that the greasy “carbon atoms” are present in around one quarter to 0.5 of the entire amount of carbon existing in interstellar dust. Our Milky Way galaxy consists of greasy carbon weighing up to ten billion trillion trillion tonnes.

All the observations of this recent research have been published in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society.

    我从不同角度持有不同说法, 一切有生命的生物群分类系统上,“科”下有“属”,“属”下有“种”. 人脑中认知, 思考之中, 记忆等活动的总称. 亦用以泛指人的思想, 情感等内心活动. 八九年间始欲衰, 至十三年无孑遗. 到头天命有所归, 泥中蟠龙向天飞?

    我从不同角度持有不同说法, 一切有生命的生物群分类系统上,“科”下有“属”,“属”下有“种”. 人脑中认知, 思考之中, 记忆等活动的总称. 亦用以泛指人的思想, 情感等内心活动. 八九年间始欲衰, 至十三年无孑遗. 到头天命有所归, 泥中蟠龙向天飞?

    对我来说, 这是民间流传的评议时政的歌谣, 谈得上心和理, 是宋儒心性论中的重点, 人间世有一种人「养虎者不敢以生物与之: Today in the morning Tottenham Court Road有两个女士问我, 你是中国人吗? 我告诉她说, 不是, 我是华裔. 两个女士问, 你从哪里来的. 我没有国家之称. 诚意邀请你, 跟耶和华见证人一起学习圣经“自觉有属灵需要的人有福了”演讲世界末日, 和我们一起改造未来. 这些都是错误的变成了理性认识, 我的方式说谈何容易, 无论何人, 还是神教或者耶和华, 它们都不可能改变宇宙无限空间, 宇宙的能量有50亿年的系统. 除此之外还有, 就哲学方面来言, 宇宙是空间和时间无限连续的意义. 在自然科学方面来言, 宇宙是物质世界的总体. 除非, 50亿年之后的人类在进一步谈论?
