Dark Putty

Posted in Humor, Science by Michael LaBossiere on September 28, 2008

I was watching a History Channel program on Dark Matter and Dark energy today while doing some home repairs. This got me thinking.

Dark Matter and Dark Energy are postulated to patch up problems in theories about the universe (crudely put, they take care of problems with attraction and repulsion). Wanting to get in on the game, I’ve decided to postulate the existence of Dark Putty. It is like the wood putty used for repairs, but works on a cosmic scale. Whenever there is a gap or hole in a theory, just slap in some Dark Putty to set things right.

    Yes. That is a cute idea but NASA has a picture of Dark Matter online and it does not look like putty.
