Traces of dark matter found in node_modules
node install process finished, the detectors at NLM reported a local increase in dark matter content.
After days of experimentation, a peer reviewed report concludes that any Node project with at least one external dependency inevitably contains traces of dark matter.
Previously, node_modules was jokingly compared to black holes due to its size and "heaviness" in terms of disk storage. However, not all node_modules folders take up a lot of space, but all of them do take up more space than could be accounted for.
While the traces are minimal, it is still possible to affect the total mass of the computer. NLM researchers advise to delete node_modules folders if you want to decrease the weight of your backpack or luggage, for example.
