Half of the universe's missing normal matter has been found
NEW SCIENTIST The particles link galaxies together and are part of the cosmic web

The teams' work focused on the universe's ordinary matter, matter composed of protons, neutrons and electrons, as opposed to mysterious dark matter, which make up most of the known universe.
These simulations have hinted about the fact that all the galaxies in the Universe are connected with long filaments of regular matter but scientists could not get any evidence regarding those connections or so-called missing matter.
The particles were found by two teams - one led by experts at the University of Edinburgh, and one from the Institute of Space Astrophysics in Orsay, France.
'It's been purely speculation until now'.
But scientists believed there should be more normal matter out there than had been previously been discovered and set about to show the threads of gas actually exist. Two teams, who both separately uploaded papers to the arXiv preprint server in September, found these baryons using an effect called Sunyaev-Zel'dovich (tSZ).
Some of the light scatters as it collides with the gases particles, leaving a tiresome patch in the cosmic microwave background. When this happens, it leaves a trace in the cosmic microwave background (CMB), the relic radiation from the earliest universe seen from across space. Because the tendrils of gas between galaxies are so diffuse, the dim blotches they cause are far too slight to be seen directly on Planck's map. This effect is essentially light left over from the Big Bang scattering off the particles in the gas.
They then combined the Planck images for the areas around each galaxy to make their baryon strands observable. Furthermore, they found the matter was far denser than average-in Tanimura's paper it was up to three times denser, while in Graaf's paper it was as much as six.
With a total of 260,000 pairs of such galaxies already explored, it turned out that in filamentary structures between them, baryonic matter is several times denser than elsewhere in the universe.
"The missing baryon problem is solved", Tanimura told the magazine.
'If this factor is included, our findings are very consistent with the other group.
Dr. Ralph Kraft, an astrophysicist from the Harvard-Smithsonian Center of Astrophysics at MA in US State, explained that, "Everybody sort of knows that it has to be there, but this is the first time that somebody - two different groups, no less - has come up with a definitive detection". He said the studies go "a long way" in showing that many of our fundamental ideas about space appear to be right.
