Interesting. Wonder if Eric's Hydrogen survey data are going to play a part?

But, I'm afraid that clip just raises more questions in my mind about dark matter.

Just the idea of dark matter goes against the grain of our world, our universe, our very existance. Now they are talking about dark matter galaxies! That means dark matter has form just as regular matter does! Where does that end? Dark stars? Dark matter Black Holes? Dark gamma/x-ray generators? Dark Matter life!?

I hope to be around when some of this gets sorted out, but I'm afraid I won't be. Whatever, it will be interesting, to say the least.

My alter ego, Daddio, has been studying this concept for some time. I think that he has it nailed.

Good, Wm., maybe we should just ask the dog?! LOL

What was it in the 20's, N Waves or something like that?? And "the Ether" before that? (my times could be way off here)

There does seem to be more evidence of "something" this time around, though. Seems to be...
