The Case of the Missing Satellites (video) International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research Share Print E-Mail Loading video... Caption This animation shows a supercomputer simulation of a galaxy like the Milky Way and its invisible dark matter halo. We zoom in to the galaxy and can see knots of dark matter where we would expect to see many satellite galaxies, but they don't exist in the real Universe. That's the missing satellite problem in a nutshell! Credit Credit: Prof Chris Power and Dr Rick Newton, ICRAR. Music by Reuben Christman. Usage Restrictions Use with credit.
