[[Mod. note -- I've fixed the slightly-garbled DOI URL. The article
itself is paywalled, but the preprint is on the arXiv: https://arxiv.org/abs/1611.03722
Don't overlook that Fig 1 double-counts some small but unknown amount
of the hot gas, as noted in the figure caption. In other words, the
combined red and green sectors should be a little smaller than shown.
An upcoming _Nature_ paper by the same lead author will suggest that
most or all of the missing baryons are in the form of very hot
intergalactic gas, detected as O VII. That is difficult but not
quite impossible to observe with current instruments. Future X-ray observatories should give much better information.
