Monster bubbles evidence of dark matter? › News in Science (ABC Science)

Monster outflows of charged particles stretching above and below the centre of the Milky Way, could contain tantalising evidence of mysterious dark matter, say scientists.

Although dark matter constitutes 84 per cent of all matter in the universe, it has never been seen.

Its existence has only been inferred from its gravitational effects on visible matter, radiation, and the large scale structure of the universe.

Writing on the pre-press website ArXiv.org , Dr Dan Hooper from the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, and Dr Tracy Slatyer from Princeton University, say dark matter could be causing some of the features seen in Fermi bubbles.
