Are Black Holes Actually Dark Energy Stars?
George Chapline, a physicist at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, doesn’t doesn’t believe black holes are real. In 2005, he told Nature that “it’s a near certainty that black holes don’t exist” and — building on previous work he’d done with physics Nobel laureate Robert Laughlin — introduced an alternative model that he dubbed “dark energy stars.”

How to Use the Large Hadron Collider to Search for Dark Matter
In fact, some might say that a principal goal of the LHC and future colliders will be to create and study dark matter. For that to happen, there must be a means for the visible universe and the dark universe to communicate with each other. In other words, the constituents of the particles that we collide must be capable of interacting with the putative dark-matter particles via fundamental forces.
