"Despite the vast and expensive effort to figure out the identity of the invisible stuff that seems to make up much of the universe, no proposed dark matter candidate has been detected by any scientific experiment. Now, a team of researchers has suggested a design for a new dark matter experiment, one that relies on a super-thin mirror and would aim to detect something called dark photons." ~ op cit

‘If’ is the operative word. I’ve read that there’s growing confidence in finding alternative theories.
