Inside the Sun may accumulate dark matter

Scientists said that inside the Sun is hidden dark matter. The new theory is that the Orb absorbs particles of matter from the center of the milky way. The accumulated dark matter particles that cannot be observed directly influence the processes inside the stars of our planetary system.

Theory was proposed by scientists from Durham University in the UK. They believe that the so-called asymmetric dark matter may explain some inconsistencies in the standard solar model, which was successfully calculated the density and temperature of solar material. To measure the longitudinal wave inside the star it was much harder.

The surface temperature of the Sun is about 6 thousand degree Kelvin, while in the core, it reaches about 15 million. Compression waves are the result of processes on the surface of the Sun. They are not particularly different from compression waves produced during an earthquake.

Previously it has been suggested that dark matter from various corners of the galaxy has an effect on the activity and structure of the Sun.

As writes Daily Mail, the dark matter falls into gravitational trap of the star and can't get out of it due to insufficient amounts of antimatter. This means that dark matter is not destroyed when interacting with other matter. In the end, the amount of dark matter inside the Sun is constantly increasing. The accumulated substance may have on a star even greater effect than previously thought.

Scientists suggest that dark matter particles absorb the energy in the hot Central parts of the kernel. Then they migrate to other places in the Sun. All this leads to a decrease of the Central temperature and transfer of heat.

The same effect leads to a decrease in the speed of fusion. Therefore, to maintain a constant luminosity of the Sun has to pump up in - of additional hydrogen. The result is a decrease in pressure toward the solar surface.

Scientists say that in order to prove what is really happening inside the Sun, you will need to find a stable particle dark matter interacting with ordinary matter. They hope that such a particle, if it exists, will be found at the next startup of the Large hadron Collider or direct observation of dark matter.

Structural changes in the nucleus, according to the researchers, break the balance between gravity and pressure. This explains the discrepancy between the theoretical calculations with observations of waves in the Sun.published
