Where's the dark matter? A new study finds none near the Solar System! This would be embarrassing for the popular theory, backed by good evidence from colliding galaxy clusters, that it consists of weakly interacting massive particles concentrated in roughly spherical clouds around galaxies, as shown in the artist's picture below.

But there's room for error in this new study, and I'll boldly guess it's wrong.

If you don't believe in dark matter, you should read about the Bullet Cluster:
