Hexaquark new candidate for Dark Matter

Recommended Posts

There have been a number of dark matter candidates put forward over the years, but we still don't seem to be much closer to finding an answer. This is where the d-star hexaquark - more formally, d*(2380) - enters the picture.

I've seen similar claims for diquarks and pentaquarks so I would be hesitant on the DM claim.

I do not see how a hexaquark - or any multi-quark system for that matter - would fail to electromagnetically interact with its surroundings (i.e. absorb/emit light), which is a basic property of DM.
