Does Dark Matter Harbor Life
The common assumption is that dark matter is the “glue” that holds together galaxies and galaxy clusters, but resides only in amorphous clouds around them. But what if this assumption isn’t true and it is only our prejudice — and ignorance, which is after all the root of most prejudice — that led us down this potentially misleading path?
Shaking Up the Dark Universe: The Dark Horses of Dark Matter
Forget what you think you know about dark matter. After a 30-year search for a single, as yet unidentified, species of dark matter particle that would make up some 25 percent of the mass of the universe, physicists are starting to consider novel explanations.
