I read here:

that so called Standard Model only explains ~ 5% of the mass of the universe. Is this not conclusive evidence that this model is falsified--is it not time to give up the ghost and move on ? The Standard Model derives from mid 1960's, and we only get 5% understanding of something as fundamental to physics as mass present in the universe after all these years of effort. Why do governments continue to fund research on this model ? Not trying to step on feet of those that work in this area of research--but 5% predictability in science is pathetic. Yes, yes, of course the Standard Model does a good job in the 5%--but I find this argument wanting. So let this thread begin a discussion of how we are to reach understanding of the missing 95% of mass in the universe.
