Hell, just go to Detroit or Chicago. Plenty of it there.
That aside, Pop Sci lost me when it sold out to the Gorebull Warming myth. As for the subject, wanna know WHY there's an obsession with finding dark matter? Here's the undiscussed reason: they are desperate to find something that supports the notion of an endlessly cycling universe of Big Bangs and Big Crunches, so that Event One can become just the latest in an infinite series rather than the one and only Big Bang.
If they can find enough "dark matter" to add its gravity to "light" matter, they can show that the universe will ultimately stop expanding and collapse into itself. They can then reject the necessity of God as the Prime Mover of creation. In short, it's a way to justify atheism.
Old saying: the closer we get to the beginning of the universe, the closer we are to looking into the face of God. Atheists are hoping beyond hope that when we get there, we will see nothing and no One.
