   NASA’s Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope may have uncovered a new high energy mystery. Like our own Earth, galaxies and even large scale galaxy clusters have magnetic fields shrouding them. The fields of mature galaxies such as our own Milky Way should have been seeded during the early formation of their weaker ancient counterparts. Perhaps these got their start from early supernovae, which spewed charged particles forth into the cosmos. These galactic magnetic fields may even help control the modern era rates of star formation, as well as regulate interstellar gas and guide cosmic rays. While examining distant extra-galactic sources, a team of astronomers at the University of Geneva’s Center for Astrophysics found something potentially startling; distant sources such as blazars and highly energetic galactic nuclei seemed sapped of their predicted strength. This effect is the same without bias in all directions. This would suggest that free floating magnetic fields range the cosmos, perhaps predating the modern day galactic fields. These intervening fields are a predicted cause of the observed drop in gamma-ray energy from these distant sources. Could the universe itself have an overall polarized field? Or is there another effect that has yet to be accounted for, such as intervening dark matter or dark energy?  Further analysis by Fermi and other scopes soon to come online may prove to be key to unraveling this mysterious effect… stay tuned!

    OF COURSE . . .
    At last some interesting and refreshing measurements from the established science!
    It is just simple Electrodynamics – The universe is electrical on every levels.
    1. The reason that telescopes can detect distant objects is because these are electrically charged in the first hand. Light in every kind of frequency is electrical rays.
    2. Electrical currents induce magnetic fields.
    3. Magnetic fields have “knots” where gasses and matter is squeezed and accelerated via the z-pinch effect. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Z-pinch
    4. Stars; planets with atmospheres and galaxies have such z-pinch-knots in which nuclear formation takes place.
    5. Light is both a particle and wave. The particle is moving in a forward spiraling motion around centerline of direction. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Circular_polarization
    6. Circular Polarization is the very course to all spiraling motion in the Universe. When such rays hits molecular clouds, everything in the cloud are set in swirling motion. At first in minor swirls that later on become assembled in few larger and larger swirls until they end up in just 1 major electromagnetic swirl and then we could have a young galaxy going.
    7. The so called 4 basically forces is just 1 electrical force – but with every kind of charges. Even “the attraction gravity” is included in this one force via the z-pinch effect.

    Remarks: When going into the realms of Electric Universe, all kind of darkness-type-matter and antimatter can be binned together with “black holes” that just is a tunnel/tube much like in a hurricane.

    “Dark matter is just not yet lit up (electrified/magnetized) matter – and the space is full of both lit up and not yet lit up matter in moving in an eternal motion between assembling and dissolving. And therefore Big Bang is quite out of all kind of natural equation. This speculative theory is a very “endangered species” and it really should get “the shot of mercy” right now.
