Dark matter acts uncannily like particles found in the 1930s, study

CANADA: According to new study, dark matter may not be as exotic as we’ve been led to believe. In fact, it may act remarkably similar to ‘pions’ – subatomic particles that were discovered back in the 1930s – and knowing this may finally help us detect the mysterious matter, which accounts for 85 percent of the Universe’s mass.
Despite the fact that dark matter is predicted to be pretty much everywhere, scientists have never been able to directly observe it. This is because it’s long been assumed to not interact with anything other than gravity, allowing it to travel through the Universe unnoticed, effectively in its own dimension – hence the name ‘dark’. But a team of physicists led by the University of Tokyo in Japan has come up with a new hypothesis that suggests this might not be the case.
