I think we need to wait until they restart the LHC
by wpgwpg / May 8, 2013 / 7:19 PM UTC

When they crank that LHC up to 14 TEV, I think we'll have a lot better idea about dark matter, Higgs bosons, string theory, and who knows whatever else. The smartest physicists in the world will be looking at the masses of data that will ensue, so I really doubt that the likes of you and I will figure it out here. These guys have been looking at it for a good no. of years now, so I'm going to wait and watch. I'll continue to monitor twitter.com/cern and other science news in the mean time.

So what does an elephant look like?
by Willy / May 8, 2013 / 10:23 PM UTC

The 1st link I supplied provides a timeline or summary of what happening or has happened to resolve the problem or question. It boils down to a real doosy of a quest, I mean how do you know you really found it. Everything, I reviewed just leaves more questions than answers. At best, I have determined or like to believe its a "particle that's unattached" or left alone because its has so much real empty space(distance) not to interact with anything, otherwise it would have long become baryonic matter. It's practically a "what an elephant is" by touching various parts and determining it's this or that or not. -----Willy Happy
