the title pretty much says it all. i am just wondering if dark matter (which doesn't interact with light i believe) gets eaten by black holes, or is unaffected by them.
thechosenone said:hold up, what do you mean by dark energy acts like negative gravity? like dark energy is repelled by large masses?
Chronos said:I view it highly likely that galactic core SMB's originated almost entirely from dark matter.
It would be wrong, for example, if DE is nothing more than the cosmological constant ([itex]\omega[/itex] = -1).Wallace said:According to current understanding the ratio of dark to ordinary matter is the same for the entire history of the universe, back until the very first moments where we really don't have a clue anyway. Of course we really have no clue what DM is anyway so that could be wrong.
Point taken! The general thread was discussing DM and DE, and as you said, I got confused as to which one we were talking about here.Wallace said:You're confusing your darks Garth! We were discussing dark vs baryonic matter not dark energy. Dark and baryonic matter densities both drop with the inverse of the volume of the universe, hence their ratio's remain the same.
