What Is Dark Matter? New Evidence Sheds Doubt On Long-Held Beliefs About Particle Collisions

I apologize, I know most people don't give a hoot about Dark Matter and I'm always bringing it up. But I couldn't resist posting this cool picture of this fancy and way cool toy. Toy because it is fun to monkey around with, but only if you are one of the very important physicists with the special clearance to get near such a magnificent machine. Such wondrous machines are helpful to modern science and modern existence and are well worth the expense, no ifs, ands or buts about it.

I'm not picking on the technological marvel, only the theory of dark matter. I don't know how many times over the years some scientist here or there has claimed that dark matter has been confirmed (kind of), and time after time, they are still looking for it. Can we get on the same page already, after all, we are talking rocket scientists here, not sci-fi ufo nuts like me.

So they are not looking for dark matter in the quantum zone any more (where quarks, protons, muons and mufons, hide). Now they are going to look for dark matter in the massive trashbin that galaxies swim in. Yes, the universe is nothing but a monstrous landfill, where discarded planets and other debris has been piling up for billions of years, ever since the Big Bang gagged on 99% pure cosmic dust that it was snorting, and hurled out what is now known as the universe.

They will never admit to it (that such things are delusions) so me blabbering away about it is really futile. But as long as they post pretty pictures with their articles, I will keep posting the facts. Which are, there is no Dark Matter, and there never was a Big Bang. Ok, there is a Big Bang theory, a television sitcom, my wife loves that show, btw.

PS yeah, yeah, yeah, they are only doing their jobs, and no harm in looking is true. If I had a big atom smasher to play with and could smash atoms all day long, no one would hear a peep from me.

A group of internationally renowned scientists are gathering in a small Italian city to debate a picture that, if research is any indication, could forever change the way astrophysicists study dark matter. The meeting, known as Planck 2014, centers on an image that replicates what the universe looked like when it was 380,000 years old -- a time when the temperature of much of outer space was hotter that the sun.

Data from the image captured by the European Space Agency’s Planck satellite technology aren’t scheduled to be published until later this month in the journal Astronomy and Astrophysics, but it has already sparked a new debate over what exactly makes up dark matter. While it’s still understood at only a very basic level, dark matter is broadly defined as space matter that creates a gravitational pull throughout the universe.
The pictures collected by the Planck satellite provided astrophysicists at the conclave in Ferrara, Italy, with a glimpse into the past by using radio receivers to capture the remnants of microwave radiation left over from the Big Bang.
The debate over dark matter is heating up. Astrophysicists recently suggested, for instance, that GPS satellites might inadvertently be able to identify traces of dark matter lurking near luminous matter. That research came after the journal Physical Review Letters posited the notion that dark matter might slowly be swallowing the known universe.
The Planck findings, so far, indicate the 13.8 billion-year-old universe is made up of 4.9 percent atomic matter, 26.6 percent nonatomic dark matter and 68.5 percent of the broadly defined and even less understood dark energy, according to the New York Times, which was first to report on the Planck 2014 results.
Planck 2014’s findings don’t pin down what makes dark matter but rather what does not.
