Dark Matter Candidate


  • There has been an error on the puzzle uploaded that has since been fixed after the puzzle was revealed. Please remember to download the new puzzle if your local puzzle has 4 quicksilver in the output instead of 2.

    In response to a puzzling recent discovery at The Uxbridge Observatoire on the apparent weight of the cosmos, Professor Samella Tyne has offered this elusive molecule as the source of missing mass.

    She postulates that the molecule could be produced in large quantities from stellar novae, and their optical properties would render them invisible to our earthly lenses. Her paper has split the academic community, with some hailing it as genius, others deriding it as "mere fantasy."
