Dark Light Dwellers (UN-D-7983)
Despite the seriousness of the incident, Baladene had been able to take enough data to convince both himself and other senior scientists that he had encountered a unique creature; one that he later concluded was made up of what the astronomical community refer to as "dark matter".
Dark matter knowledge is the holy grail of astronomy - it refers to the idea that ninety percent of the universe is matter in a form that we cannot see - and that it outweighs the visible contents of the universe - by at least a factor of seven.
Baladene believed study of this creature would help explain the missing content of the universe.
Professor Bob Baladene later left BNFL employ and continued to work on his theories for the US Government.
