Dark matter is not a WIMP says Northeastern professor

Associate professor of physics Brent Nelson along with colleagues from the UK and Italy have recently published a paper proposing that dark matter is not a weakly interacting massive particles, or WIMPS, and it is not any particle that is so far known or theorized to exist.

The group argues that dark matter is made of particles from one of the many “hidden sectors” that are thought to exist outside of the “visible sector” that encompasses our entire visible world.
