20 years? Oh subby I figure the bad science, bad scientist movies and games will be with us forever.

Well it could... If they can figure out what the fark it is.

They'll all be remakes anyway...........

Better prepare to fight off the Reapers. Shepard warned us.

Heh. So Abell 520 has dark matter that appears to actually have undergone some sort of interaction with itself. Meanwhile, the Bullet cluster has long been used as the prototypical evidence that dark matter existed, precisely because lensing shows that the dark matter of the two clusters *didn't* collide and instead passed right through along with the galaxies (unlike the gas). Finding that dark matter actually does undergo dissipation would rewrite a really big chunk of cosmology. Wouldn't it be hilarious if there were actually two types of dark matter; one that was dissipationless and one that wasn't? Oh universe, why you so mysterious?

/this is why the universe is awesome - because it loves to troll us

The latest issue of Discover magazine has a great article about a guy who is very close to proving that Einstein's relativity is wrong. Not like entirely wrong, just not really correct, as evidenced by this need for so-called "dark matter" and "Dark Energy" to explain the missing 95% of the mass in the universe that would have to exist if relativity is an accurate description of physics. He's using the truly relativistic ideas of Mach, and apparently the math works the same on both the macro and the quantum level, which is something that no one has been able to do with relativity.

Basically what I'm saying is that "dark matter" is bullshiat, it does not exist, it is a construct that physicists have used to plug the holes in relativity because it is generally considered academic suicide to suggest that Einstein was wrong.

Everyone knows "dark matter", "dark energy" and so on are the new Vulcan. Coming up with a mathematical model that avoids them is old-hat. Mind you, that's Discover magazine, always on the leading edge.
