Could a new proposed particle help to detect Dark Matter?
Researchers have proposed a new fundamental particle which could explain why no one has managed to detect ‘Dark Matter’, the elusive missing 85 per cent of the Universe’s mass. Dark Matter is thought to exist because of its gravitational effects on stars and galaxies, gravitational lensing (the bending of light rays) around these, and through its imprint on the Cosmic Microwave Background (the afterglow of the Big Bang). Despite compelling indirect evidence and considerable experimental effort, no one has managed to detect Dark Matter directly. —> Read More Here
