Does a Galaxy have an electrical charge?
« on: 30/12/2009 23:53:48 »
Does a Galaxy have an electrical charge?  If so, it would have a natural tendency to repell other galaxies that have a similar charge.  This makes more sense to me than saying that Dark Energy is responsible for expansion of the Universe.  No one has ever proven that Dark Energy even exists.  I welcome comments.  Regards, Joe L. Ogan

It seems likely to me that galaxies are charged but I'd expect their net charges to be very low.  I don't think there's any mechanism that would result in all galaxies having the same charge so while some might repel, others would attract, and on a nearly equal basis.
