There is a class of theories of physics, which is called 'Kaluza-Klein (Kaluza-Klein)', who are seeking how to reconcile gravity with other fundamental forces, if we take the extra dimensions (coordinates). A well-known person is usually a three-dimensional (3D) measurement system can be complemented by entire eight dimensions, which fit well into the space that surrounds us. Popular, but not yet proven explanation essence of dark matter lies in the fact that the dark matter particles "live" in the extra dimensions. We feel their presence through the force of gravity, but we can not "feel" them in any other way. How dark matter produces excess cosmic rays? Particles of the Kaluza-Klein (Kaluza-Klein) have a curious property (one of many), which lies in the fact that they are their own antiparticles. When two such particles, they destroy each other, forming a small "dust" of the photons and electrons, with high energy. Electrons do not get lost in the invisible dimensions, however, they materialize in the real 3-dimensional world in which ATIC can find them in the form of cosmic rays. " 'Our data can be explained by the presence clouds or clusters of dark materieyr adjacent to the solar system, 'says Vefel (Wefel).

'In particular, in accordance with the proposed hypothesis there is a particle of Kaluza-Klein (Kaluza-Klein) with the mass, which has an energy of about 620 GeV (GeV), and which at the time of destruction has to produce electrons with the same energy spectrum that we observe. " Check this possibility is not easy, because dark matter – well, really very dark. However, it is possible to detect a cloud, carrying out searches for other products managering destruction, such as gamma rays. Again, at the Space Telescope, the Fermi (Fermi) may be more likely to identify locate the source. 'Whatever it was, "Adams says,' it will be stunning." More information about this study is presented in the source: 'The excess of electrons with energies of 300-800 GeV in the cosmic rays, 'by J. Chang and others (J. Chang et al). issue of the journal Nature on Nov. 20, 2008. Translator: (Translation 'Gulf Stream')
