Dark Energy? Pshaw I say.
The first of the alternatives to dark matter and dark energy appear. http://www.space.com/scienceastronomy/090817-dark-energy-alternative.html Wait and see, dark energy and matter will pass from vogue, as the expansion of the universe turns out to be "the apparent expansion" of the universe. Next up: the Higgs Boson, which (in my opinion) is another bug patch, not a fix to the underlying models. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Higgs_boson
