Saw a few threads discussing the BBT and dark matter/energy along with it. Figured I'd share this:

Looks like we're charging full speed ahead in figuring out Dark Matter. Between this and CERN we will hopefully have some answers in a few years.

This is great. I never thought of how dark matter may interact with itself. Excerpt below. It is pretty crazy to be using background light an measuring gravitational lensing as a inference to dark matter. Over time we should find other examples where we can use the mechanism to learn more. I see CERN as a better opportunity to prove dark matter. I know there are many more other types of experiments. One day need to catalog them and make predictions on which will first "discover" dark matter.

A lag between dark matter and its associated galaxy is predicted during collisions if dark matter interacts with itself, even very slightly, through forces other than gravity [2]. Dark matter has never before been observed interacting in any way other than through the force of gravity
