Direct search for WIMP dark matter
As current experiments are more than four order of magnitude away from a full coverage of the bulk of supersymmetric predictions, the coming years may reveal that the ultimate sensitivity can only be reached by detector techniques that are now in a very early development stage.

During radiation domination most gravity comes from photons, they are the major source of gravitational potential so as pressure redistributes the photons, gravitational potentials get washed away.
Geometrical constraints on dark energy models
However, see §§4.2 and 5, below. 3 The flux over the surface of a sphere enclosing the particle is non-zero, and ‘flux’ comes from the latin for ‘flow’, so one could be forgiven for imagining something flowing away from the particle.

How much of the halo comes from accreted structures? An ACS study by Ibata et al. (2009) of the halo of NGC 891 (a nearby edge-on galaxy like the Milky Way) shows a spatially lumpy metallicity distribution, indicating that its halo is made up largely of accreted structures which have not yet mixed away.

Other authors (Roberts 2007; Soria 2007; Gladstone et al. 2009; Weng & Zhang 2011) have suggested that the soft excess does come from the disk surface, but much further away than the innermost stable orbit, where the disk may be obscured or replaced by an outflow or a scattering corona (Section 4.3).
