Dark Matter… or not

I have never been a fan of the Dark Matter or Dark Energy hypotheses. They both feel like a made up boogeyman to cover the fact that astronomy just doesn’t know what’s going on.

And, thankfully, here is something that’s a challenge to the dark matter theories.

Dark Matter might not be real.

I don’t think it’s real, folks. I never have. And you won’t find it in my writings.





I’m thinking this article explains why spiral galaxies behave as they do. Because they’re simply a lot more massive than we thought them to be. And I’d guess that’s a feature unique to spirals. That elliptical and irregular galaxies have had that halo torn away by the gravitational interaction that made them elliptical or irregular in the first place.

The Hubble Telescope is AWESOME.
