Hubble observations suggest a missing ingredient in dark matter theories

On 10 September 2020 NASA reported: Astronomers have discovered that there may be a missing ingredient in our cosmic recipe of how dark matter behaves. They have uncovered a discrepancy between the theoretical models of how dark matter should be distributed in galaxy clusters, and observations of dark matter's grip on clusters. Dark matter does not emit, absorb, or reflect light. Its presence is only known through its gravitational pull on visible matter in space. Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the field of science, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.

One way astronomers can detect dark matter is by measuring how its gravity distorts space, an effect called gravitational lensing.

Researchers found that small-scale concentrations of dark matter in clusters produce gravitational lensing effects that are 10 times stronger than expected. This evidence is based on unprecedentedly detailed observations of several massive galaxy clusters by NASA's Hubble Space Telescope and the European Southern Observatory's Very Large Telescope (VLT) in Chile.

... The team's paper will appear in the Sept. 11 issue of the journal Science.
