comment Can Dark Matter just be clumps of Neutrons
Ok, crazy idea here: is space-time not so distorted inside a black hole that "time stands still"? As in: wouldn't de neutrons inside the black live relatively longer when observed from outside the black hole, due to time dilation? I understand it is difficult or even impossible to talk about the lifetime of a distant object in general relativity sense, but could this idea work at all?

comment How do I properly calculate the curl of the Aharonov-Bohm flux line vector potential?
Of course that is only the $\boldsymbol e_z$ part, the rest is identically zero.

comment How do I properly calculate the curl of the Aharonov-Bohm flux line vector potential?
$\nabla \times \boldsymbol A = \frac{1}{r} \partial_r r \frac{\Phi}{2\pi r} = \frac{\Phi}{2\pi r} \partial_r 1 = 0$. Or something like that.

comment How do I properly calculate the curl of the Aharonov-Bohm flux line vector potential?
Right, and where does the naive approach (i.e. filling in the curl directly) actually go wrong? I'm still unable to pinpoint exactly which step is illegal/wrong and how to perform that step generically in a mathematically correct way. Thanks.

comment What is the speed of sound in space?
I've always found temperature to lose its usefulness when it comes to either near-vacuum or super-reactive plasma's like the quark-gluon plasma. I just think to much in terms of the pressure a gas exerts or the frequency spectrum a solid emits as temperatue I guess.

comment Evidence that stationary masses in space actually attract each other
@Alexandru: Brian Greene's "Fabric of the Cosmos" has a very well-written chapter (Chapter 3, to be exact) on this aspect of and the development of our understanding of spacetime. Perhaps it can help you grasp the concepts involved better than a physics-oriented answer.
