- A fast hurricane of dark matter is approaching Earth at 310 miles per second, according to astronomers.
- Very little is known about this occurrence, since the lightweight dark matter can’t be seen nor felt.
- Scientists can only prove that the dark matter exists based on the movement and placement of a stellar stream, which has the fainting remnants of a smaller galaxy engulfed by the Milky Way.
- Astronomers hypothesize that dark matter is traveling with the stellar stream through our solar system.
- They also note that this dark matter won’t cause any harm to Earth.
If astronomers’ calculations are correct, the Solar System is right in the middle of a turbulent space event: a vast ‘hurricane’ of dark matter, blowing at an insane speed of 500 kilometres per second (310 mps).
We can’t see it, and we can’t feel it – but it could mean that a direct detection of dark matter is closer than we thought.See the rest of the story at Business Insider
