This is very exciting. If they really find WIMPs it will falsify my theory that dark matter is really /\ < 0 vacuum fluctuation energy with positive pressure with w = -1. Since positive pressure outweighs negative energy density by a factor of 3 in isotropic situations the net result is attractive gravity in GR where the effective source is (energy density)(1 + 3w). The clumping makes this AdS vacuum phase indistinguishable from w = 0 CDM in gravity lensing et-al. Thus I compare the search for WIMPS with the Michelson-Morley search for the motion of Earth through the Newtonian aether, i.e. a null result.
