The Vast Dark

The Killers, Hot Fuss

Seems that the first “dark galaxy” may have been discovered. For years astronomers have believed that a lot of the universe is made up of “dark matter“—matter which does not emit or absorb light—first detected by its influence on the rotation of visible galaxies. Now advances in radio astronomy seem to have revealed a galaxy made of dark matter with no visible component (i.e. no stars).
