    Default newly discovered MW satellite galaxies shed light on Dark Matter



    Satellite Galaxies of the Milky Way

    Observations such as these cannot be accounted for by alternative gravity theories such as MOND. they hint that the observed deficit of satellite galaxies around the MW may be due to problems with models that predict such satellites may be more luminous than they actually are. the DM galaxies are dark indeed.

    another stake in the heart of the MOND idea.

    here is the full original article.

    the AAS promises another article on this topic Wednesday..... eagerly looking forward....

    I can recall long before Dark Matter became a thing, reading of theories regarding the existence of super faint galaxies in the local group. Leo 1 and 2 where always a bit of a puzzle. Perhaps they will turn out to be the brightest members of this new class of galaxy
    Nexstar SE8 mount with Farstar C8 OTA (Caroline) Meade Series 5000 HD-60 25mm Paradigm Dual ED 25mm 18mm 15mm, Baader 21mm 17mm plus tunning rings, X-Cel LX 2X Barlow, various other bits and bob.

    Yes, I think that fits in with what we are now seeing, better now than then.....
