Submission Testable Dark Matter Theory with Anapoles->

iggymanz writes: A simple and testable model of dark matter was made by phyicists Robert Scherrer and Chiu Man Ho, that has dark matter particles with doughnut shaped magnetic fields, called anapoles, that only interact with electromagnetic fields when moving. Hence the they rarely are observed to interact with matter in their present very cold state; however such particles are detectable and this theory can be verified in the near future. These particle are also a type of majorana fermion.
