reading the article is is interesting but cannot figure out what the researcher meant by the quote below. What theory is not wanted to be true?

Lauer has even revisited a previously discounted theory — one that astronomers do not want to be true.

He must mean a dust cloud in the Kuiper Belt

"New Horizons has an instrument to look for dust just by direct impact, and we don't see very much. So we think it's clean out there," he said. "But maybe we are mistaken and maybe there is a diffuse cloud of dust scattering sunlight even way out in the Kuiper belt."

Yes, it's not well written. The writer doesn't explain why astronomers don't want it to be true.

But it's fairly clear the theory they don't want to be true is the one about diffuse dust.
