Mysterious X-Ray - Dark matter solved? (Examiner)

NASA.gov News reveals this Wednesday, June 25, 2014, that this newfound indication could lead to a massive breakthrough for science if the particles turn out to be a specific type of constituent known as sterile neutrinos.

Although it’s far too early to confirm, the NASA mysterious signal is certainly a promising discovery for space researchers and science buffs alike. The mysterious X-ray reading was discovered as part of an in-depth investigation into a series of galaxy clusters. The devices used to pick up on this signal are the XMM-Newton and NASA’s very own Chandra X-ray Observatory system.

According to the report, one of the most popular theories is that these X-ray “beams” are being created by the slow decomposition of particles commonly called sterile neutrinos, which are prime contenders for the creation of the “secret” element, dark matter.
