Damn, I've read this story.  As I recall, they find out the sun's spitting out far fewer neutrinos than it should be and will go supernova in a few centuries.  World governments unite to build a giant NAFAL ark to fly refuges off to Betelgeuse, while the ones who chose to stay behind are divided between hedonists and apocalyptic cultists.  Then the people on the ship get to watch the Earth melt before turning their attention to colonizing a new planet.

Let me guess...they can't detect it.

Damn you, dark matter.
Come out from your hiding place.

Clarke -"Songs of a Distant Earth".  One of my favorites. A sorta rehash of Mutiny on the Bounty....

Waiting for the inevitable cascade resonance failure.

Well, its more than theology.The term "Dark Matter" is just a placeholder.


Something is causing the cosmos to behave as though there was more matter than what we can see. It's likely some form of matter that is hard to detect.  We could also call it Whothefarkknowsium.

The old mine is actually just a few miles from Deadwood, if TFA didn't mention that already.

So are they going to search for Bigfoot and Santa Claus while they are at it?

how can what makes up the bulk of the universe be weaky interacting and so difficult to detect, but effects whole galaxies.

in any other study, if your theory was missing 90% of something, you would come up with a new theory.
