Perhaps a hint of dark matter particles? ...Maybe....

Dark matter is considered nessessary to make the standard model physics mathematically viable.....
Attached to the ISS is a machine which is counting cosmic ray collisions with other particles....
The results of these collisions is being tabulated and the comparative chart shows some discrepancy with expectations....(they have counted a few billion collisions by now)
The project results may be revealing dark matter particles......(a litre of soda may contain perhaps one D matter particle at any one time )
Like stray neutinos they have very little reaction with our normal matter, and zip on through us.....
The upshot is that as a result of such tabulations we may be seeing a hint of the D matter particles.....
it would be a major advance to determine if this is indeed the case.....
Dark matter has always seemed a sort of scientific cop out to my limited knowledge base...but hey....the standard model may be more right than wrong on this issue.....what do you think?

I guess nobody wants to think......WTF?

Not really a whole lot you can say to this.

But, nonetheless, exciting times we live in. The closer we get to Warp Drive the better.

Well AMS' results are around a year or so old now, and its interesting but not a definitive YES we got it. There is a few different models that can produce the same behaviour. One of which is dark matter. That said, its definitely extremely important to cover all bases!
