Dark Matter may now be just 'sticky' not 'gluey'

Quote:One way to study dark matter is by analyzing smashups between galaxy clusters, the largest structures in the universe. When galaxy clusters collide, astronomers expect galaxies to tag along with the dark matter, like a dog on a leash. Clouds of intergalactic gas, however, plow into one another, slow down, and lag behind the impact.

Quote:The blend of blue and green in the center of the image reveals that a clump of dark matter resides near most of the hot gas, where very few galaxies are found. This finding confirms previous observations of a dark-matter core in the cluster. The result could present a challenge to basic theories of dark matter, which predict that galaxies should be anchored to dark matter, even during the shock of a collision.

Dark matter... "It's like hearing the music but not seeing the band." Best description to date. I can sort of wrap my thought around quantum physics easier than than the unknowns of dark matter.

Meh, they're just guessing. It's probably not even dark, but glittery yay.gif

Most likely, with flashes of quarks and photons here and there and there and here. yay.gif
