Paris in the Summer When It Sizzles
Focus on a cosmic constant as the explanation for "dark energy" has led science nowhere. Scientists are now considering a number of soultions including modifications to gravity. Alternative ideas face a high barrier in matching the "predictions" of LCDM. Soon science will learn of a Theory which actually predicts the standard parameters, and also predicts a changing speed of light.
Proportion of baryonic matter is predicted as 4.507034%, where WMAP has found 4.4 +/- 0.3%
The amount of dark mass in galaxies and clusters is 23.87%, where WMAP has found 23 +/- 4%
That leaves 71.62% for other stuff, where WMAP has found 73 +/- 4%
In solving the problem of "dark energy," GM=tc^3 has a very bright future. Pictures from Paris coming soon!
