    Default Dark Matter craters ?



    (1) Long Period Comets have been proposed to be inter-steller in origin, since their observed parabolic trajectories are essentially unbound to the Sun.

    (2) The Sun's Oort Cloud is thought to extend "half way to the nearest star". Upon the strength of the Cosmological Principal, all those other stars also have "Oort Clouds" containing copious quantities of comets, which reach "half way to the Sun". Between the Sun's Oort Cloud, and all those "Cometary Clouds" around every other star, the whole disk of the Milky Way Galaxy is a vertiable "blizzard" of icy bodies -- which occasionally get pulled in, on parabolic orbits, into the inner systems of stars, where they can impact potential planets.

    CONCLUSION: Interstellar comets have already been observed "trespassing" inside our Solar System. So, if interstellar "debris" can careen through our Solar System... why doesn't Dark Matter do the same ? Why aren't their "Dark Matter craters", caused by Dark Matter impactors, on planets in our Solar System ?

    Dark matter is an illusion.

    well while im not so sure as 420,(its not an illusion by the way it has mass! umm i think!)
    i wouldnt call them craters,(due to their circular motion or orbit) they may graze dark matter but no impact imho, do you mean like a comets orbit ends at the ort cloud where a wall of dark matter meets it and on its orbital rebound it acually dents the dark matter? i guess it would be a crater in a sense if im understanding correctly(prob. not tho lol) maybe if we knew more about the properties of darkmatter we would know if it rebounds itself or if a comet grazing the surface actually dents the event horizon, interesting stuff like always widdekind!!

    We live in the realm of the electron and the galaxies live in the realm of the quark.

    I'm told that DM, by definition, is nearly non-interacting -- sounding suspiciously like Neutrinos, DM could pass through the Solar System w/o interacting at all.

    Where is the beef in the theoretical dark matter? You just cannot make things up as a band aid for the failed big pop.
