read about fuzzy dark matter

Read (to be honest, skimmed) the paper entitled On the Cosmic Web Elongation in Fuzzy Dark Matter Cosmologies: Effects on Density Profiles, Shapes and Alignments of Halos.

Tibor Dome et al discuss the fuzzy dark matter scenario over the Lambda cold dark matter (ΛCDM) cosmological model especially given that there is still no experimental evidence of particles.

Paper is available for download in PDF form from the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society.

They expect FDM-like imprints on the internal properties of virialised halos to be strikingly visible in the high-z Universe which our new telescopes should reveal.

I don't fully understand all this but I'm encouraged to see more and more research being done to challenge the ΛCDM model. 'Cause in my old failing bones, it doesn't feel right.

Something's missing.

Maybe it's fuzzy dark matter.
