Peg-o-Leg's Ramblings

Some people have jobs that require them to commute from one end of the country to the other – they’re bicoastal.

Some people have an illness that makes their minds jump from one mood extreme to the other – they’re bipolar.

Experts have discovered life on both Planet Blog and Real World, but there are significant differences.   I hop on and off the interplanetary shuttle all the time and here’s what I’ve noticed:

Bilge Demirkoz

CERN particle physicist Bilge Demirköz investigates everything from dark matter to the possibility of antigalaxies, trying to understand what we — and the universe — are made of.

What is it about space and the investigation of dark matter and antimatter that captures your imagination?

Well to me, the question is, Why are we here? Or, why am I the way I am? And what made me the way I am? And that in itself is a cosmological question. It’s clear that a very big mechanism is at hand to make this universe exactly the way it is.

We know that about only 4 percent of the universe is made up of matter like us. And then there is something really mysterious called dark energy, which is making the universe expand and accounts for 73 percent of the energy of the universe. And then there’s this other part, about 23…
