I've been plowing through Gina's recent news note with regard to the items of personal interest. The dark matter problem is of cource interesting to all of us from the fundamental question of "Is the Missing Mass SIs or Mysterious Stuff?"
So, stomping on the "Mysterious Stuff" perspective, I quote from the article mentioned:
> "The question one would ask is 'have we found WIMPS?' and
> the answer is 'not yet', but definitely these things are
> unexpected events...interestingly, another group has seen
> similar events at a similar rate so we're excited about this and
> have spent a long time investigating it," he added.
"press releases" -- READ THEM WITH A VERY CRITICAL EYE.
