Dark Matter revealed?

Interesting stuff and a reminder I need to read up more on the exotic particles proposed for dark matter as I did not know about the one proposed to explain the asymmetry of time-flow.

No, the Geneva experiment is trying to find the "god particle", i.e. Higgs-Boson if I'm not mistaken.

I like the way they describe finding it - it almost like they were just sitting having there sandwiches before getting back to the coal face and someone said "christ look its a couple of dark matter particles - over there next to Fred's Hard Hat".
