Researchers: Less dark matter than thought?

Measurements of how pulsars – rapidly spinning stars that emit beams of light – move as they orbit the centre of the Milky Way have demonstrated that the dark matter density in the plane of the galaxy’s disc is lower than expected.

What if there isn’t any? Maybe we are pursing a phantom? Just a thought.

We’ve been looking for dark matter for a long time.

Discover: Even the best dark matter theories are crumbling

Researcher: The search for dark matter has become a “quagmire of confirmation bias” So many research areas in science today are hitting hard barriers that it is reasonable to think that we are missing something.

    See SPIRAL ‘GRIP” hypothesis where none of the missing Dark Matter need exist, for the empiircal observations to align with basic science and normal matter only.
    Reference ‘SPIRAL cosmological redshift and hypothesis’ volume II of the YeC Moshe Emes series for Torah and science alignment.

    The absence of evidence is every bit as striking with dark matter as it is evolution.

    Yeah we haven’t discovered or found dark matter but we know how much is in the universe somehow
