This may have some bearing on wither JKH is a fraud or not "Hell I never liked Newtonian physics anyway!"
Some basic principles of physics and astronomy have been cast into doubt by new research involving scientists in Australia and Europe.
The researchers, including Dr Helmut Jerjen of the Australian National University, studied dwarf galaxies orbiting the Milky Way.
They found the galaxies were not uniformly spread around, as predicted by the so-called dark matter theory.
"They are forming some sort of disc in the sky," Dr Jerjen said.
The dark matter theory explains some major problems in cosmology by postulating that most of the matter in the universe is invisible.
Dr Jerjen told AAP his observations, taken from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey and interpreted in cooperation with astrophysicists at the universities
of Bonn and Vienna, did not necessarily mean the theory should be abandoned.
"I wouldn't like to say the dark matter doesn't exist," he said.
But the alternative is even more radical - abandoning Newton's theory of gravitation.
"A possible solution to this contradiction would be to reject Newton's classical theory of gravitation," Dr Jerjen said.
"If this is true, then our observations could be explained without dark matter. This conclusion has far-reaching consequences for fundamental physics
and for cosmological theories."
One possible consequence of modifying gravitation theory could be that black holes do not exist.
Black holes are predicted by Einstein's general theory of relativity, which already explains some astronomical observations not predicted by
classical Newtonian theory.
But Dr Jerjen said modifications of Newton's theory, which is still commonly used by astronomers, would also imply changes to Einstein's theory.
The changes could mean that space-time around super-massive astronomical objects does not have the "singularity" which prevents light escaping from
So they may not be as black as they have been painted.
