New study finds mysterious lack of dark matter in Sunís neighbourhood
[link to www.eso.org]

[snip]

The most accurate study so far of the motions of stars in the Milky Way has found no evidence for dark matter in a large volume around the Sun. According to widely accepted theories, the solar neighbourhood was expected to be filled with dark matter, a mysterious invisible substance that can only be detected indirectly by the gravitational force it exerts. But a new study by a team of astronomers in Chile has found that these theories just do not fit the observational facts. This may mean that attempts to directly detect dark matter particles on Earth are unlikely to be successful.

A team using the MPG/ESO 2.2-metre telescope at ESOís La Silla Observatory, along with other telescopes, has mapped the motions of more than 400 stars up to 13 000 light-years from the Sun. From this new data they have calculated the mass of material in the vicinity of the Sun, in a volume four times larger than ever considered before.

ďThe amount of mass that we derive matches very well with what we see ó stars, dust and gas ó in the region around the Sun,Ē says team leader Christian Moni Bidin (Departamento de Astronomía, Universidad de Concepción, Chile). ďBut this leaves no room for the extra material ó dark matter ó that we were expecting. Our calculations show that it should have shown up very clearly in our measurements. But it was just not there

Dark matter is a mysterious substance that cannot be seen, but shows itself by its gravitational attraction for the material around it. This extra ingredient in the cosmos was originally suggested to explain why the outer parts of galaxies, including our own Milky Way, rotated so quickly, but dark matter now also forms an essential component of theories of how galaxies formed and evolved.

doesn't exist in a radius of 17,000 light years around the sun? damn. thats a nice chunk of the milky way galaxy.

this means they are shit outta luck huh? so much for their theories!

poor astronomers...always finding their theories to be inadequate

"Dark Matter" is a delusional fantasy, promulgated by mathematicians, to make their equations come out right.

there is no evidence of dark matter anywhere..not saying it isnt, of course, we just do not know what the hell is going on...1dunno1
