Holes in the fabric of space and time may be responsible for dark matter

Posted by in category: cosmology

Your typical, run-of-the-mill black holes have long ago been eliminated from the running as candidates for dark matter, that mysterious substance that appears to make up a large proportion of the mass in our universe, including our own galaxy.

The reason is simple: ordinary black holes come from the collapse of stars, which means that they were originally formed from what is called baryonic matter, ordinary matter. You are made of baryons and so are black holes.
