What will new data from Gaia reveal about the formation and evolution of stellar streams in the Milky Way?
A “paleo-detector” may sound more like a Jurassic Park plot point than an astrophysics experiment, but today’s featured paper shows us that digging deep for ancient minerals may be an effective way to characterize the ever-mysterious nature of dark matter.
A laboratory astrophysics experiment calls into question the proposed dark matter origin of an unidentified spectral line at 3.5 keV
Will future telescopes reveal the nature of dark matter imprinted in the stellar streams stretched around our galaxy?
A report on the characteristics of a new ultra-faint dwarf found in the Magellanic Bridge, in the constellation Hydrus.
Confused by the hubbub about the “galaxy lacking dark matter”? Fear no more! In today’s Astrobite, we’ll examine some hot takes by the scientific community.
