Vast Structure of Milky Way’s Satellite Galaxies is a Problem for Dark Matter.



Astronomers have now found that the Milky Way’s various satellite objects are actually distributed in roughly a plane at a right angle to the galactic disk in a huge structure extending 33,000 – 1,000,000 light years from galaxies centre. Astronomers were not only baffled by how well the distributions of differing types of objects agreed but have shown that material being lost by these objects forms long streams along their paths that are aligned with this plane of satellite objects showing that this structure is stable.

The alternative explanation is that these satellite galaxies and clusters formed together in a single event suggesting that, a collision of two galaxies. However all this indicates that dark matter does not exist destroying this a central tenant of the standard cosmological model.
