"...10 unusually bright globular clusters orbiting the nebulous DF2 caught the researchers' eyes...the clusters shine far brighter than other similar objects, though they are about two times less dense than their fellow clusters.

So, could dark matter have been "transformed" into dark energy where there is less gravity?

I don't think we have more than an inkling when it comes to understanding what we call matter or energy

Thanks. That's an interesting link even if it mostly says 'we don't know yet'.
I love their inference that the absence of dark matter implies its existence.

I am not convinced about anything concerning datrk matter, too little info, to me it is only a theory.

By the looks of your profile pic, I'd think that the "earth being relatively spherical" is just a theory. Just kidding you. Cool pic. ;-P


I think we have a long way to go in understanding dark matter. Take the scientific term of the "nothing" that our universe was supposed to have come from. Nothing does not mean "nothing." There is something there but we cannot detect it enough to know just what it is. That's why we call it nothing. It's complicated.

I try and explain this to my atheist boyfriend he doesn’t get it . He’s satisfied by nothing is nothing, can’t get beyond that point , he gets mad if u say nothing is something then claims I must believe in god lol so annoying


I think all the dark matter got sucked into Trump's head.
