This must be a conspiracy theory.

An unusual signal picked up by a European space observatory could be the first direct detection of dark matter particles, astronomers say.

Dark matter cannot be seen, but the mysterious substance is thought to make up around 85% of all the matter in the universe. The web of dark matter that stretches through space is believed to give the cosmos its structure, although so far it has eluded direct detection by physicists.

Researchers at Leicester University spotted the curious signal in 15 years of measurements taken by the European Space Agency’s orbiting XMM-Newton <> observatory. They noticed that the intensity of x-rays recorded by the spacecraft rose around 10% whenever it observed the boundary of Earth’s magnetic field that faces towards the sun.

The findings are tentative and could take several years to check, but if confirmed they would represent a dramatic advance in scientists’ understanding of the universe.
