CERN takes up the hunt for dark matter

Good news, the Large Hadron Collider is going to search for dark matter.

Revved-up CERN collider aims to shed light on dark cosmos

I wish them the best of luck. I have a feeling that brute force techniques may not be sufficient in order to discover the nature of dark matter.

Who knows, maybe Juan Garcia can help them out.

Dark matter update

DAMA , a research group that investigates rare processes in an underground laboratory of the Gran Sasso, has published results of an experiment that investigates dark matter.  You can find out more about their work here:

The DAMA Project – Investigations on particle DArk MAtter and other rare processes with highly radiopure scintillators @ Gran Sasso

It is an interesting project using a well-known approach, looking for seasonal variations in data. They add an interesting twist by assuming that their dark matter target of sodium with it’s odd number of protons is the reason that their detector has succeeded in detecting dark matter while others have not.

I’m still skeptical that they have actually detected dark matter since there are other plausible explanations for the results. In any event, it is a fascinating development.

Can Scientists use GPS to Find Dark Matter

A very interesting article came out today:

“Hunting for topological dark matter with atomic clocks”

Scientists have an ingenious idea that they can detect dark matter due to its disruption of the fabric of space-time.

They might want to read Pomroy’s World as dark matter plays a big role.  I will make sure to pass on the GPS idea to Juan and Muriel (characters in Pomroy’s World) as it might help them get out of their current predicaments.

Finally there is hope.  Don’t despair Pomroy, we are here for you.

As you may have heard, a young teen from Long Island is stranded on a world in a dark matter universe.  You can find out more by reading the novel, Pomroy’s World: Arrival, (paperback), (Kindle).

After you read Pomroy’s World: Arrival, you can help Pomroy find his way home.  The author of Pomroy’s World has set up a 3D virtual world using an open source application called OpenSim (Diva’s Distribution).

Volunteers are need to build the Pomroy’s World online simulation. If we work together it is possible that we might find a way to reach the dark matter universe and rescue Pomroy and his exotic sweetheart Nna.

Everyone is welcome in Pomroy’s World.  Please feel free to explore and build.  The only rule is that everything should be in the spirit of Pomroy’s World.

My new novel, “Pomroy’s World: Arrival” has just been released

Pomroy’s World: Arrival is the first in a series.  It is a fantasy/science fiction novel set in both the real world and the world of dark matter and energy.  The hero is Pomroy, a teen from Long Island.

Pomroy’s World: Arrival is available now online.

You will also be able to obtain it online from other sources in a few days and the Kindle version should be in stores soon.

I hope you enjoy it.
