I'm not an expert, but I can't help thinking that dark matter and dark energy are the equivalent of aether from when we did not understand electromagnetism, and the current state of our knowledge (relativity, quantum mechanics, etc) is just an intermediate step in the full understanding, and future physicists will laugh at us for this dark matter thing.

Really? It must be my sources, but right now for example I find it very difficult to find on the web more than 2-3 *actual* photos or videos of the moon surface from their rover. It seems there are not even dedicated sites to that. Man, a rover on the moon! Which you could control almost in real-time, unlike Mars. We're not talking about kittens on youtube.

What annoys me more is that such Chinese activities are almost a secret to the rest of the world, I don't know if they or us are to blame for that. I guess the majority of us did not even know they had two space stations, astronauts doing space walks, and what about that probe they sent to the moon? I mean, this achievements are so important for human kind in general, they should at least share the non-strategic details with the rest of the world.
