reports on a new astro-ph paper
on the lack of a Dark Force (cosmological constant). The abstract suggests
a new concordance model with 90% dark matter, 10% baryons, no dark energy and 14.8 Gyr as the age of the universe.
This sounds familiar. It includes a reference to the now published paper by D. Wiltshire
. On Wednesday
, Dr Motl reported on the difficulties that Fermi initially faced having his ideas accepted. Meanwhile, Louise Riofrio brings us reports
from New York, and a small town nearby.
