I also learned every single way in which a lawyer can be rude to a waiter: the cross-examination (Why on earth would I want dessert …

Dark matter is thought to interact with regular matter only on rare occasions. Now, according to a new study, this occurrence is 1,000 times less likely than we thought. The proposed value and reasoning is published in The Astrophysical Journal Letters. Dark matter is crucial in the current model of cosmology.
