Dark Matter Remains Missing

How long do astronomers get to search for something that has no direct evidence?

Excuses for Missing Dark Matter

Astronomers display creativity at rationalizing their inability to find what they believe makes up the bulk of the universe.

Cosmologists Are Blind in the Dark

There is no exotic dark matter, according to the most sensitive search to date. The ramifications for cosmology are enormous.

Cosmology in Perpetual Crisis

Secular cosmologists are no closer to the truth than they were 20 years ago.

Cosmologists Need New Physics

More new observations don't fit current cosmological theory.

Occult Cosmology Mutters Dark Matters

New instruments and projects will seek to find influences that no scientist understands.

Dark Matter Is Lost in Space

Astronomers are spending millions on their biggest gamble yet: looking for something that may not exist.
