An article by a former ESR has been featured in several popular science publications, including Physics World.

In the article Aaron Vincent, Pat Scott and Aldo Serenelli show that a certain model of asymmetric dark matter can potentially solve a decade-old problem known as the Solar Abundance Problem, which is a mismatch between the theory and observations of the sun.



The figure illustrates 1) the capture of dark matter particles by the sun as it passes through the Milky Way (black arrows) followed by 2) heat conduction by the captured DM particles from the core to the outer layers (yellow).
