New studies confirm existence of galaxies with almost no dark matter

A Yale-led team of researchers is doubling down on its earlier finding of a galaxy with almost no dark matter. In 2018, the researchers published...
Astronomers observed that the dark matter does not seem to clump very much in small galaxies, but their density peaks sharply in bigger systems such as clusters of galaxies. It has been a puzzle why different systems behave differently. (Credit: Kavli IPMU - Kavli IPMU modified this figure based on the image credited by NASA, STScI)

Dark matter may be hitting the right note in small galaxies

Dark matter is a mysterious form of matter that is believed to occupy 85% of the matter in the universe, and about a quarter...
An international team of astronomers using the VIMOS instrument of ESO’s Very Large Telescope have uncovered a colossal structure in the early Universe. This galaxy proto-supercluster — which they nickname Hyperion — was unveiled by new measurements and a complex examination of archive data. This is the largest and most massive structure yet found at such a remote time and distance — merely 2 billion years after the Big Bang. This visualization shows Hyperion and is based on real data.

This Hubble image reveals the gigantic Pinwheel galaxy, one of the best known examples of “grand design spirals”, and its supergiant star-forming regions in unprecedented detail. The image is the largest and most detailed photo of a spiral galaxy ever released from Hubble. Credit: ESA/NASA

Astronomers discovered that galaxies spin like clockwork

According to the latest finding by the ICRAR scientists, all galaxies rotate once every billion years, no matter how big they are. The Earth turning around...
