    Now We Know, It is Dark Energy

    Dark energy is driving universe apart: NASA's Galaxy Evolution Explorer finds dark energy repulsive

    "The action of dark energy is as if you threw a ball up in the air, and it kept speeding upward into the sky faster and faster," said Chris Blake of the Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne, Australia. Blake is lead author of two papers describing the results that appeared in recent issues of the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society. "The results tell us that dark energy is a cosmological constant, as Einstein proposed. If gravity were the culprit, then we wouldn't be seeing these constant effects of dark energy throughout time."
    Dark energy is thought to dominate our universe, making up about 74 percent of it. Dark matter, a slightly less mysterious substance, accounts for 22 percent. So-called normal matter, anything with atoms, or the stuff that makes up living creatures, planets and stars, is only approximately four percent of the cosmos.

    Well, hell yes. Bigger than the Rapture or Al Queda. This is Everything. Dark Energy drives the universe. Now you know.

    I think "mechanical breathing" would have been a better choice of words, there. "Heavy breathing" kind of gives the whole Darth Vader/Luke encounter a little bit of a different flavor than I think was George Lucas was going for. I mean, I could be wrong, but look at him: blue jeans, thick beard, lots of flannel. I really don't think he was shooting for the "heavy breathing" angle.
