And that is why everything in Science is called a 'theory'. Because if a better explanation appears where that theory better fits the observations, it is adopted. Nothing is ever 'final'.

Propose a theory and then try to prove it wrong... when you do, your job is done.

Exactly. People have been trying to prove Newton and Einstein wrong for a long time, and keep failing.

MOND is probably wrong, but it's still the best explanation for dark matter that there is. It doesn't rely on magic particles that only interact with gravitons, in order to be true. Like the article concludes - it's a fun show to watch.

Also, for those who get a blank space where the story should go - some websites don't like being opened in a frame as CKA does it. You have to click again on the story title in the top left in order to launch the story in it's own tab.
