    i think this is the right forum to post this question on. i dont know much at all about dark matter, and i just have a question concerning it. now i understand that dark matter is something that doesnt relfelct or emit light, but can dark matter be a solid? and if so is it possible to feel or even stand on if its big enough? just a question thats been bugging me for a while, thank you.

    if you consider dark matter as just unseen, which i would agree with, you need to review what matter is. gas, solids and liquids or some combination. clouds of any are possible and much matter in our solar system is primarily ice. there is no reason to think many planet like things are floating around out there as debris from forming systems should not dissolve simply because no orbit is obtained.

    I have also heard that W.I.M.P.S are classed as being "dark matter" too.
    The hand of time rested on the half-hour mark, and all along that old front line of the English there came a whistling and a crying. The men of the first wave climbed up the parapets, in tumult, darkness, and the presence of death, and having done with all pleasant things, advanced across No Man's Land to begin the Battle of the Somme. - Poet John Masefield.

    Dark matter surrounds all "normal matter," like a scaffold, and seems to have attracted normal matter to itself. It's certainly big enough already as it exists in 5 times the amount of normal matter. In a way we are already "standing on it" and "in it."

    The dark matter in the universe has recently been mapped. Good podcast, too.

    there is no reason to think much energy from unseen things around star clusters is probably. even our small mass in orbit around our sun send out some energy. debris should be common during and after any formation. in formation and for some time, no light is emitted from the forming star or what around it.

    Nasa has recorded some debris around our solar system but also said this does not appear to be in large quantity. the millions of asteroids or comets that do orbit in our system may out number whats is just outside.
    keep in mind nothing is thought to enter and leave this system in any orbit fashion...
