Researchers have tested a model that suggests the universe’s expansion is due to a dark substance with a kind of magnetic force, not dark energy.
Until now, researchers have believed that dark energy accounted for nearly 70% of the ever-accelerating, expanding universe. For many years, this mechanism has been associated with the so-called cosmological constant, which Einstein developed in 1917, which refers to an unknown repellant cosmic power.
“We have removed dark energy from the equation and added in a few more properties for dark matter.”
But because the cosmological constant—known as dark
