a step in the right direction at least. Perhaps the WIMPS will inheret the earth. [4whom, Apr 05 2013]

       from the article: //But even with more AMS data, "we will still not be completely able to figure out if it's really a dark-matter source or a pulsar" Bindi told...//   

       well that says it all really...curiously enough these wondering positrons are soon to be blamed for problems with, erhm, the Curiosity rover.

       You mean it's in greyscale?

       So the result of the experiment is just another set of questions? Well, that's all as should be.   

       Anyway, everybody knows dark matter is just extra- dimensional gravity hitching rides on photon trails.

       Not everybody. I happen to not know that because till now I was in the dark. No matter.

       I wonder how many research projects NASA considered and rejected before it found one with such a euphonious acronym.

       Very redolent of "According to Aristotle, the heavenly bodies should be perfect spheres. ...   

       A defender of the traditional theory, however, proposed to save it by arguing that the observed surface of the moon was enveloped in an invisible substance which filled in all the craters and covered all the plains to a height equal to or greater than the highest mountain peak... Therefore, the moon, contrary to appearances, was a perfect sphere after all.   

       Galileo's response was to agree that the moon was covered by an invisible substance, but to argue that it may have been distributed equally over the moon's surface, so that the mountain peaks were raised over the plains by the same height ...."

       Wensleydale cheese to be specific, according to my sources.
