    First-ever image of dark matter?
    By Deborah Byrd in SPACE | April 12, 2017
    The scientists say their image, which combines images from more than 23,000 galaxy pairs, confirms dark matter’s existence. Will other astronomers agree?

    Sharing is caring!

    this is not new news.
    this is quite old. maybe some 5 to 10 years atleast ?
    the detection was a detection of something which is theorised 'as' probable dark matter.

    NOTE ! i am not attempting to cast dispersions on Deborah.

    if you have a wee google you should be able to find reference to the original detection some years back.
    if you decide to, please post any new links to new discussion(or reviews etc) on it. it will be very interesting.
