    Dark Matter may have been detected

    http://arxiv.org/pdf/1402.4119v1.pdf

    "We think what we have discovered is the decay of a particle of dark matter… The signal's distribution within the galaxy corresponds exactly to what we were expecting with dark matter, that is, concentrated and intense in the center of objects…"

    –Oleg Ruchayskiy, EPF de Lausanne Laboratory of Particle Physics and Cosmology

    A study published Dec. 11 says that the detected signal is consistent with the decay of a type of theorized dark matter particle known as sterile neutrinos.

    "Sterile Neutrinos" sort of sounds redundant and a little sad icon_neutral.gif

    Rumor has it that there is a black hole inside Uranus.
