Plucked to Extinction In The Origin of Species, “extinction and natural selection,” Charles Darwin argued, “go hand in hand.” Extinction, however, was a relatively new concept – only emerging in revolutionary France in the early nineteenth century. While pigeon-holed in his library after the HMS Beagle voyage, Darwin conveniently overlooked one of the largest extinction [...]

Some of these researchers have now concluded that there is no evidence that the particles, of which they suppose dark matter consists, exist. The report, on the science news website space.com, was headlined “Search for Dark Matter [...]
