I'm a little confused as to how their experiments actually showed anything. We've basically got holes in physics and instead of patching them with Dark Matter and Dark Energy it sounds like he's made up another term to do it. Of course it fits the holes, that's what it's designed to do!

Well, be careful... astromomy is still a science, but it performs experiments in a different manner. (They make predictions, then see if they hold.)

The approach of... "here is a theory which will make dark matter and dark energy go away and explain gravity not behaving as K*m1*m2*r^-2... it also makes this prediction" isn't bad.

What they're now proposing is to test that consequent prediction.

Good science... and much better than string theory.
