Looking for dark matter
Dark matter is thought to exist as 'clumps' of tiny particles that pass through the earth, temporarily perturbing some fundamental constants. A new paper in EPJ D by Rees McNally and Tanya Zelevinsky from Columbia University in New York, USA, sets out two novel methods for measuring these tiny changes and thus detecting dark matter. Both use already existing experimental infrastructure. (2020-04-09)

Astronomers at the University of British Columbia have collaborated with international researchers to calculate the precise mass of the Milky Way and Andromeda galaxies, dispelling the notion that the two galaxies have similar masses. (2014-07-29)

Kazan University puts forth ideas on the nature of dark matter
As we currently know, dark energy and dark matter comprise 96 percent of the total mass of the Universe. Two main hypotheses about the nature of dark matter are presently debated. One of them posits that dark matter consists of massive compact halo objects, the other ascribes this property to weakly interacting mass particles. (2019-02-05)

Inside the big wormhole
Based on the latest evidence and theories our galaxy could be a huge wormhole (or space-time tunnel, have you seen 'Interstellar?') and, if that were true, it would be 'stable and navigable.' This is the hypothesis put forward in a study published in Annals of Physics and conducted with the participation of SISSA in Trieste. The paper, the result of a collaboration between Indian, Italian and North American researchers, prompts scientists to re-think dark matter more accurately (2015-01-21)

'Dark core' may not be so dark after all
Astronomers were puzzled earlier this year when NASA's Hubble Space Telescope spotted an overabundance of dark matter in the heart of the merging galaxy cluster Abell 520. This observation was surprising because dark matter and galaxies should be anchored together, even during a collision between galaxy clusters. (2012-11-29)

Dark matter exists: The observations which question its presence in galaxies disproved
As fascinating as it is mysterious, dark matter is one of the greatest enigmas of astrophysics and cosmology. It is thought to account for 90% of the matter in the universe, but its existence has been demonstrated only indirectly and recently called into question. New research conducted by SISSA removes the recent doubts on the presence of dark matter within the galaxies, disproving the empirical relations in support of alternative theories. The study was published in The Astrophysical Journal. (2019-04-29)

The search for dark matter widens
In this week's issue of Journal of Applied Physics, investigators report the discovery of a new material that may be able to directly detect dark matter. The material, known as a scintillator, should be sensitive to dark matter that is lighter than a proton. This will allow the search for dark matter to enter a largely unexplored mass range, below that of the proton. (2018-03-20)

Flashes of light on the dark matter
A web that passes through infinite intergalactic spaces, a dense cosmic forest illuminated by very distant lights and a huge enigma to solve.

Cosmic x-rays may provide clues to the nature of dark matter
Researchers at Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz in Germany have presented a novel theory of dark matter, which implies that dark matter particles may be very different from what is normally assumed. In particular, their theory involves dark matter particles which are extremely light -- almost one hundred times lighter than electrons, in stark contrast to many conventional models that involve very heavy dark matter particles instead. (2018-02-08)

Gravitational waves could shed light on dark matter
Black holes colliding, gravitational waves riding through space-time - and a huge instrument that allows scientists to investigate the fabric of the universe. This could soon become reality when the Laser Interferometer Space Antenna (LISA) takes up operations. Researchers from the University of Zurich have now found that LISA could also shed light on the elusive dark matter particle. (2018-10-22)

Looking at massive galaxy clusters, EPFL astronomers have observed that their brightest galaxies within them 'wobble' -- an unexpected phenomenon in current models. The discovery, published in MNRAS, adds to the body of evidence of dark matter beyond the Standard Cosmological Model (ΛCDM). (2017-10-25)

New argument presented to highlight the axion nature of dark matter
According to the hypothesis, axionic dark matter, provoking structural rearrangement in compact stars with a strong magnetic field, can protect them from a catastrophic loss of magnetic energy, but at the same time allows such objects to rotate abnormally fast. (2020-02-03)
