Mass extinction and huge geological changes on Earth are the result of dark matter. Such a conclusion was a scientist from the US. According to him, the passage of the planet on the galactic disk and through it causes a variety of disasters. The study was published in "Notes of the Royal Astronomical Society."


Biology professor Michael Rampino of New York University explains regular geological shifts and mass extinction events - for example, the destruction of the dinosaurs in a collision with an asteroid - the passage of the Earth through the clumps of dark matter.

Previous studies have shown that the Earth revolves around the galactic center, making one revolution every 250 million years. The planet moves in an undulating path, crossing the galactic disk every 30 million years.

Galactic disk is the plane of the Milky Way. In addition to many stars, clouds of gas and dust, it contains a high concentration of dark matter - the elusive subatomic particles that form about 27 percent of the Universe.

After analyzing the motion of the Earth around the galaxy, Rampino found that meeting with the dark matter coincide with the comet impact and mass extinction of species. The researcher believes that the dark matter in these regions of the galaxy orbits of comets changes, which are usually located far from Earth. As a result of the comet begins to move closer to our planet.

In addition, according to the scientist, dark matter can accumulate in the Earth's core. Annihilation of dark matter particles leads to the release of significant amounts of heat, which can cause a volcanic eruption, a reversal of the magnetic field or sea-level change. This may be an explanation of geological events that occur on our planet every 30 million years.

The results show that the cycles of geological and biological evolution on Earth in part subject to the rhythms of the galaxy. The scientist believes that his work will change our understanding of the Earth.
