Mo1200cc-208 Where is the Dark Matter?
Did you know that the universe is out of balance! At least our understanding of it. Galaxies are rotating too rapidly for the amount of matter that we can see or postulate that exists in them. This includes our own galaxy, the 'Milky Way". Does this mass consist of burnt out stars, brown dwarfs, trillions of tiny cometary snowballs, exotic matter, or matter in another 'dimension" that we might be able to reach. If we can solve the dark matter problem, will we begin a new revolution in physics or is the answer mundane. Can this panel solve the problem in 1 hour!
