Nature, the Magazine, Acknowledges Failure Of WIMP Dark Matter Paradigm

The journal Nature has run a short "news" article acknowledging the continued and serious failure to the WIMP paradigm to explain dark matter phenomena. Axion dark matter and modified gravity theories, or a completely sterile dark sector, are suggested as alternatives.

The article focuses on the failures of direct detection experiments and the Fermi satellite to detect dark matter, without even reviewing the ample and growing astronomy evidence against dark matter particles as the mechanism for the (undeniably real) phenomena attributed to dark matter.

Physics is bankrupt.

No dark matter prediction. Contrast with Maxwell's discovery of light as an EM phenomenon.
