Possibility of gradual rips of the Universe structures

Zbigniew Jacyna-Onyszkiewicz


According to a recently published data obtained by the space probe WMAP, as much as 72% of the Universe energy density is the dark energy of the state equation parameter w from – 1.29 to – 0.75. The dark energy of w < – 1 has been named the phantom dark energy as this value w implies the breaking of the Universe structures in a finite time tR. The phantom dark energy rips apart the Milky Way, the solar system, the Earth and ultimately the molecules and atoms of which we are composed, before the time tR.
