Thinking Dust?


I don’t know about you, but this image coupled with news about dark matter, has me wondering what Philip Pullman has in store for us in The Book of Dust.

A concatenation of puzzling results from an alphabet soup of satellites and experiments has led a growing number of astronomers and physicists to suspect that they are getting signals from a shadow universe of dark matter that makes up a quarter of creation but has eluded direct detection until now.


From ” A Whisper, Perhaps, From the Universe’s Dark Side” at the New York Times.
