WIMP's and Dark Matter

Postby Event Horizon on September 27th, 2018, 5:00 pm 

I was listening to a podcast on micro-gravity and began to wonder if the postulated clumps of WIMPs that some think could be dark matter are so weakly interacting, how do they not cause the formation of planets in those dense patches where gravity will be high?
Also, how come all these WIMPS have managed to link up to make an interconnecting web of sorts to make these clumps and filaments? I cant see how all these WIMPs got there in the numbers needed in the first place. We don't just find clouds of Bosons clumping as far as I know, so why WIMPs?

Hello, EH. Remember this forum [Fringe is where this first posted] is for theories. If you just have a question about contemporary theories, you can ask in a physics or cosmology thread, or start one in those fora.

I'll just move this, which should get more eyeballs on it.
