If you missed the recent London debate
between the Dark Side proponent, Andrew Jaffe
, and sensible theorist, Subir Sarkar
, there is an Imperial podcast
available. I also enjoyed the review on the Physics World
Sarkar was second to take the stage and he put forward a very different view. He immediately urged us - along with all working cosmologists - to abandon this “ridiculous” notion of a mysterious repulsive fluid that allegedly fills 75% of the universe.
The waning power of the Dark Force was in evidence at the debate, with onlookers asked to vote on whether or not they thought DE existed. As Physics World reports:
Despite this being just a bit of fun, it was still interesting to see Sarkar sweep to victory by such a significant margin.
