A theory published last year by
Dennis Sciama of Oxford Univer-
sity suggested that neutrinos, an in-
visible atomic particle, could make
up the missing matter. His theory
posits that the neutrinos were bom
just after the Big Bang, the
theoretical explosion that many
believe created the universe, and
that the invisible particles would
decay at a certain rate.
Davidsen said that if neutrinos
decay at the rate that Sciama sug-
gests, then they would produce
ultraviolet light at a certain fre-
quency. The Hopkins ultraviolet
telescope, aimed at a distant galaxy,
would be able ttridetect this emis-,
sion, he said, and this would prove
the presence of the neutrinos and
that they have the mass that Sciama
But the Hopkins instrument
failed to find the emission.
“The neutrinos are not decaying
at the rate Sciama suggested. This
was the starting point for his
theory,” said Davidsen. “We effec-
tively ruled the theory out.”
But Davidsen said the finding
does not completely rule out
neutrinos as the missing mass. The
invisible particles, he said, could
still be there and could still be the
long-sought dark matter.
“They could still have mass,”
said Davidsen. “It could be that
they don’t decay as rapidly as
Sciama suggests. Most physicists
would have them decay at a slower
rate, although this is physics that is
not really understood.”
Davidsen was one of four
scientists at a meeting of the
American Astronomical Society
who reported on preliminary results
from the Astro mission.
