Noch niemand hat bisher die geheimnisvolle Dunkle Materie direkt nachweisen können. Dabei müsste das ganze Universum voll davon sein. Ein Experiment an einem ungewöhnlichen Ort in Italien soll die Suche nun voranbringen.
Pluto’s Haze in Bands of Blue - 1/14/2016 - This processed image is the highest-resolution color look yet at the haze layers in Pluto’s atmosphere. Shown in approximate true color, the picture is constructed from a mosaic of four panchromatic images from the Long Range Reconnaissance Imager (LORRI) splashed with Ralph/Multispectral Visible Imaging Camera (MVIC) four-color filter data, all acquired by NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft on July 14, 2015. The resolution is....

Globulettes are incredibly dense — slightly less than 13 times Jupiter’s mass. So these are tiny blotches of dust and gas that are downright planetary.
