Washington Post: Dark matter is apparently ‘darker’ than we thought
Given the failure to detect dark matter despite decades of effort, a new name is proposed in this article.
We thought some of the comments were even better:
- “It’s not “materia incognita”, it’s the aether.”
- “Maybe they should call it Nothing. If there is no dark matter a lot of money and paychecks will have been for Nothing.”
- “We should call it “model matter” because it does whatever our models want it to do.”
Here is a clip from The Pricinple that has Michio Kaku talking about ‘Dark Matter’.
