Dark matter just past the moon→

Ars Technica:

In a new study published in the Astrophysical Journal, Gary Prézeau has proposed that Earth and other planets and stars in the Milky Way galaxy are surrounded by theoretical filaments of dark matter called “hairs.” By finding the roots of these hairs, he reports, physicists could uncover a trove of dark matter.

Thanks to one of my favorite books, Diane Duane’s Wizards at War, the headline “Scientist says huge clumps of dark matter may lie just beyond the Moon” sounds… oddly threatening.
