Is it just me, or does dark matter sound a lot like the 'ether' that was proposed just before Einstein's time? If the movement of our solar system and planet through the dark matter creates a 'dark wind', then wouldn't the Michaelson-Morlay Experiment disprove it, just as it did to the ether? No matter how weakly interacting dark matter is, the sheer numbers which the solar system passes through every second should more than make up for the low probabilty that it will interact with the photons of the experiment.
