* 2014: CoGeNT data confirm the annual modulation of events seen by DAMA; (In the northern summer, the tangential velocity of the Earth as it orbits the Sun is in the same direction as the motion of the solar system, so the number of detected collisions is expected to peak in summer and drop in the winter).

* Dark stars: Originally researcher Paolo Gondolo wanted to dub these new, theoretical kinds of invisible stars "brown giants," but his collaborators insisted on calling them "dark stars," after the song "Dark Star" first played in 1967 by The Grateful Dead and a dark star song by Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young [@ news msnbc(09)dec21].

Around the Milky Way Galaxy > s.a. dark matter on cosmological scales [including other galaxies].
* Idea: Proposed dark matter models often predict that colliding dark matter particles could annihilate each other, producing detectable photons at a range of wavelengths, including gamma rays, which could yield our first non-gravitational clues to the nature of dark matter.
