The enormity and origin of space, of the elements that make it up, provide more and more material for astronomers to analyze and reflect on, and in this article we will mention the mysteries that have lasted the longest in astronomy, some of which are expected to be solved with advances in technology and it is very possible that many of them will never be solved.
Findings kept by astronomy and disconcerting gravity
Gravity is one of the four main forces of the universe, and it is considered the rarest of them all. The mystery is that there is no way to explain its weakness compared to the force that holds atoms together (electromagnetism)… Why can a small magnet fight the gravity of an entire planet?
The studies put forward some theories, a prolonged effort has been made to reconcile gravity as a result of space-time. Using quantum mechanics to attribute gravity to particles identified as gravitons. Another idea is that gravity is as powerful as the other three forces, but its action is diluted to various dimensions.
It is worth mentioning that the four main forces of the universe are.
Mystery of the origin of cosmic rays
The origin of cosmic rays has long dazzled astronomers who have studied the origin of this energy phenomenon for a century.
These beams contain subatomic particles charged primarily with electrons, protons and nuclei charged with basic elements, which move through the solar system to other parts of the galaxy, their movements being curved by the magnetism of the earth and the sun.
Of these cosmic rays, there are some that display an enormous power exceeding by 100 million times those recreated using artificial particle colliders. And to this day the origin of cosmic rays is an unsolved astronomical mystery.
According to scientific advances in astronomy there are new planets
As space observers and astronomers reveal the existence of new planets orbiting other stars, scholars have better understood the unique features found in our solar system.
For example, the farthest planets differ greatly from each other and their characteristics are fully identified in each other and the four planets closest to the sun have a metallic interior and a rocky shell. Many studies of the origin and formation of the planets have been carried out in order to solve the mystery of how our solar system was formed, but many questions remain unresolved.
By discovering more planets scientists will have a much greater number of planetary phenomena to study and beyond the benefit this can offer to the earth they are a very useful comparative tool it is likely that the patterns that gave rise to the formation of the solar system will be elucidated.
