    I thought some people here might be interested in this paper on the status of TeVeS, which is a modified version of GR sort of like Brans-Dicke gravity, but with a motivation similar to that of MOND, of explaining astronomical observations without dark matter. Although CDMS II failed to detect dark matter directly ( http://arxiv.org/abs/0912.3592 ), there is a recent claim that solar system observations may confirm its existence ( http://arxiv.org/abs/1001.1697 ).
