GPS Satellites: Planet-Sized Dark Matter Detector Already In Orbit

atomic clocks
The most common strategy that is pitched by the physicists is that they always try to take responsibility of their field’s limitations and they point out to the shortcomings in the modern physics and make it a reason for big investments in order to continue their physical research.

This strategy has been the same when the physicists tried to pitch about the dark matter and their related investigations. According to the physicists, they know that this dark matter and that two more than five to one. Although its gravity dictates the allocation of visible galaxies, they still do not have much information about it. Even though modern physics has given us with strong idea displaying the level, of ignorance, we have and this ignorance is being used against and for conducting costly experimenting event like the Large Hadron Collider.

Distributed Orbital Dark Matter Detector: 

According to a paper, which was published in the journal, Nature, this week comes forward to provide a solution. The paper states that our GPS satellites constellation, which is orbiting the Earth for decades, might be useful and can be used to carry out the function in the form of a planet-sized dark matter detector. This paper was written by a physicist himself, and he has specialty in atomic clocks. These atomic clocks allow keeping time about the nuclear decay and which allows everything including ultra-profitable high frequency trading on the stock market and global communications.

These clocks are also useful as they power the GPS satellites and provide accurate time-of-flight measurements about GPS signals. The system becomes very useful as they can provide precise information about the relative speed and the difference about the multiple GPS satellites and that too moving in completely different directions. Velocity and gravity are the way to warp the time.

The basic principle, which has been very clearly depicted in the recent sci-fi epic Interstellar clearly highlighted that, states that any amount of object, which is moving with different speed with give, measure the time differently and the same can be easily applied to objects moving around in the gravitational fields.

The paper clearly indicates that we might be able to track down the track matter with the help the GPS satellites network, which are orbiting our planet. If reports have be believed than $5-6 billion has already been paid for the Distributed Orbital Dark Matter Detector, which by the way is slightly less than the Large Hadron Collider.

Scientists will now be able to see the invisible dark matter, which create errors when they come close to the GPS satellites. Physical separation of the GPS clocks, which are orbiting, is very critical for this experiment. From what has been observed, looks like these dark matters does not cluster together as the other matters do in the space.

Scientists are expecting to see gravitational hotspots, expecting these dark matters to be collected in some dark planet or some dark star. As if now, these dark matters cannot compress themselves to form stars or black holes but they move freely in the universe. Even if the GPS is unable to detect the dark matters in the universe, it does not means that they don’t exist.
