I don't see how AMS can say they've discovered dark matter, or even gotten us hints of dark matter. I'm actually very disappointed that they've pushed this narrative on the media: you guys who are interested in science deserve better. The experiment is a huge technical achievement, it's doing good science, and there's no reason they should be overplaying their results in an attempt to make it sound sexier or more important.
