The authors search for and find the missing baryons in halos robustly using the kinetic Sunyaez effect. SEE:https://arxiv.org/abs/1712.08619

I would say a landmark paper, and as a chemist, a return to the periodic table of elements...finally.

You (but maybe not some of your readers) are aware that the missing baryons are not dark matter. They are simply the half of the baryons that hadn't been found directly by other means. Dark matter is still a quarter of the mass of the universe.
