If graviton mass diminishes the effect of dark energy, they point out, then dark energy would be stronger in regions with less gravity, such as nearby voids in space.
There are only a few conceivable sources of graviton production, like black hole decay, spontaneous emission of gravitons from neutral hydrogen, bremsstrahlung from electron-electron collisions in stellar interiors, and conservations of photons to gravitons by interstellar magnetic fields.

He has also become convinced of the existence of gravitons and masstrons and explains Heisenberg's uncertainty principle.
22) However, it is worth remembering that modern physics assumes some sort of "force particles": gluons for the strong force, photons for the electromagnetic force, weak gauge bosons for the weak force, and gravitons for gravity.
To date, we've got bosons, fermions, leptons, muons, pions, neutrinos, photons, gluons, and gravitons.
The experimental plan is to generate such a violent collision between sub-atomic particles that the loss of energy due to the loss of gravitons is large enough to be measured.

Changing light into electrons and then into gravity is one of the rather astonishing tricks performed by supersymmetry, which is the symmetry that can exchange particles with half-integral spin, such as electrons and quarks, with particles of integral spin, such as photons, gravitons, and W-particles.
This conference was appropriately set at Geneva, just a few miles from the great collider at CERN where cosmologists and physicists are testing the theory that ours is only one of many side-by-side universes with far more than three dimensions, operating particularly on gravitons in the company of quarks.
