Submission + - Giant simulation could solve mystery of "dark (

dhudson0001 writes: "The search for a mysterious substance which makes up most of the Universe could soon be at an end, according to new research.

The international Virgo Consortium, a team of scientists including cosmologists at Durham University, has used a massive computer simulation showing the evolution of a galaxy like the Milky Way to "see" gamma-rays given off by dark matter.

They say their findings, published in the prestigious scientific journal Nature (Thursday, November 6), could help NASA's Fermi Telescope in its search for the dark matter and open a new chapter in our understanding of the Universe."
