Dark matter fills 'empty' space

There is an acceptable term for medium, that is the intergalactic medium, or IGM for short.
The medium you refer to is the media referred to in the third article in the OP.

'NASA's Voyager Hits New Region at Solar System Edge'
http://www.nasa.gov/home/hqnews/2011/dec/HQ_11-402_AGU_Voyager.html

"Voyager is showing that what is outside is pushing back. ... Like cars piling up at a clogged freeway off-ramp, the increased intensity of the magnetic field shows that inward pressure from interstellar space is compacting it."

It is not the particles of matter which exist in quantities less than in any vacuum artificially created on Earth which are pushing back and exerting inward pressure toward the solar system.

If the three articles I linked to are corect then it is the dark matter, which the particles of matter exist in, which is the interstellar medium. It is the dark matter which is displaced by the matter the solar system consists of which is pushing back and exerting inward pressure toward the solar system.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Casimir_effect#Vacuum_energy

"a "field" in physics may be envisioned as if space were filled with interconnected vibrating balls and springs, and the strength of the field can be visualized as the displacement of a ball from its rest position"

A "field" in physics is space filled with dark matter, and the strength of the field is the displacement of the dark matter from its relativisitc rest position. This is what is referred to in the third article as the deformation of continuous media. The media is the intergalactic medium.

How do you explain how dark matter is displaced if gravity affects both dark matter and baryonic matter yeesh.

gravity attracts ALL matter

here look up the density of space

Estimates put the average energy density of the Universe at the equivalent of 5.9 protons per cubic meter, including dark energy, dark matter, and baryonic matter (ordinary matter composed of atoms)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Outer_space
and just for good measure here is the density if interstellar space
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Interstellar_medium

trust me dark matter can easily fit within interstellar space there is plenty of room

If the three articles are correct then the Milky Way's halo is the deformation of continuous media.

If this is correct then the Milky Way's halo is state of displacement of the dark matter which fill's empty space.

The Milky Way's halo is then most likely physical evidence of curved spacetime.

The positive pressure associated with the state of displacement of the dark matter is then gravity.

I give up your not listening to the scientific facts have a good night

Looks like we might be able to get back to our regularly scheduled programming...

If you are able to read the articles and are able to correctly interpret "There is no empty space in the universe. The intergalactic space is filled with dark matter" to mean there is no empty space in the universe; the intergalactic space is filled with dark matter then continue reading.

The third article refers to matter as causing the deformation of continuous media. Since dark matter is now known to fill what would otherwise be considered to be empty space this can be interpreted to mean what is referred to as the deformation of continuous media is the state of displacement of the dark matter which fills interstellar space.

The Milky Way's halo is the deformation of continuous media.

The Milky Way's halo is the state of displacement of the dark matter which fills space.

The Milky Way's halo is physical evidence of curved spacetime.
