    I skimmed the article and it seems like a confirmation of what has been expected....a legitimate discussion. I believe such findings have been made by other teams but I am NOT current.

    You can read some additional background on dark matter gravitational lensing and filaments here which is consistent with the discussion in your article:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Physical_cosmology#Formation_and_evolution_of_large-scale_structure

    and especially here which discusses different experimental techniques...

    It looks pretty standard. The big thing about results like these is that they put more and more nails in the coffin of anything that isn't dark matter.
