Title: Are quantum processes behind dark matter?
Post by: thedoc on 29/04/2012 11:41:02
Paul Young asked the Naked Scientists:
   
Given that quantum physics describes how matter is spontaneously created and destroyed at a quantum level could it be this process that, on a cosmologically massive scale, is the driving force behind dark energy?

If so would this also be an idea that could link the big theories with the small ie potentially the missing link?

Thanks for a great show (http://www.thenakedscientists.com/HTML/podcasts/)
