Dwarf galaxies may contradict theory of dark matter
« on: September 16, 2011, 06:05:57 PM »
In recent times, cosmologists have given increased attention to the concept of dark matter. However, some new findings about dwarf galaxies have introduced conflicting evidence into the debate.

From the article:
Leading cosmologist Carlos Frenk spoke of the "disturbing" developments at the British Science Festival in Bradford.

The current theory holds that around 4% of the Universe is made up of normal matter - the stuff of stars, planets and people - and around 21% of it is dark matter.
My only weakness is, well, never mind

He said he had a horrible house
I looked in it and learnt to shut my mouth

Come back my dream into my arms, into my arms

London is drowning, and I live by the river
