i have been looking for dark matter for years because the idea that there was something there and we had no idea WHAT it was.
for a person like me that is simply too tempting to not persue.

Researchers at the University of Tokyo’s Institute for the Physics and Mathematics of the Universe (IPMU) and Nagoya University used large-scale computer simulations and recent observational data of gravitational lensing to reveal how dark matter is distributed around galaxies.

physics org source

the really interesting thing is, the dark matter was real matter and there the whole time,

it was just in the form of a bubble

and by that i mean the galaxy had blown a bubble MUCH larger than the visable galaxy and its visable edge,
and might look similar to the bubble around our solar system

artistic image used

so the best way to explain this would be that galaxies are much larger than the glowing spiral we observe,
and the "missing matter" previously described as dark matter, was between the visable galaxy and the bubble wall.

its very interesting that when viewed as a bubble some interesting optical effects are encoutered,
this finding throws up some interesting relitivity questions, but all in all,
at least we found some of that illusive dark matter and can now just call it MATTER

anyone reading my other bubble threads will realise how important this news is to me personally,
and what this will mean to the larger scientific comunity

I'm guessing the universe is a sphere too, it has to be.
