“There are a great many different theories about the nature of dark matter. What I like about this theory is its simplicity, uniqueness and the fact that it can be tested,” said Scherrer.

"But boss, they already can't see us," said tertiary atom C.

 

"Shaddup and put the face paint on," replied primary atom A. "More and more of those fancy-ass scientists aren't just seeing us, they're fucking with us, stickin' us in chambers and makin' us run into each other because they want to gawk at the wreckage."

 

And it was true, modern-day atoms were feeling positively hunted. They felt they needed a plan to slip back into the peaceful shadows...

A theory that claims that there might be a new kind of dark matter.

“There are a great many different theories about the nature of dark matter. What I like about this theory is its simplicity, uniqueness and the fact that it can be tested,” said the investigator.

Camila Gomez Duclos's curator insight, November 25, 2013 1:11 PM

   Researchers say that the dark matter that makes up most of the universe could be part of the invisible and intangible counterparts.

   Dark matter is nonluminous material that is postulated to exist in space and that could take any of several forms including weakly interacting particles or high-energy randomly moving particles.

   Most scientists think that dark matter is made up of a new particle, one particle that interacts weakly with all the known forces in the universe.

   This theory might not hold true for every form of dark matter. Some researchers are saying that there is a new kind of matter that could exist, representing about one-fifth of all dark matter of the universe.
