Finally we seem to be moving back into an arena where we can make distinctions between theories by comparing their predictions with reality.

After decades of intensive effort by both experimental and theoretical physicists worldwide, a tiny particle with no charge, a very low mass and a lifetime much shorter than a nanosecond, dubbed the "axion," has now been detected by the University at Buffalo physicist who first suggested its existence in a little-read paper as early as 1974.

The axion has been seen as critical to the Standard Model of Physics and is believed to be a component of much of the dark matter in the universe.

The good thing about being a cynic is that most of the time you get to be right.

But in this case what I hear is that it looks good. And comments such as "The only thing I can say is that it looks strange to me." which you linked to are hardly convincing science.
