Using the Dark Energy Survey to see gravity microlensing through the universe.
Can we detect dark mater from cosmic gamma rays? Experiemnters in the Fermi Gamma-Ray Space Telescope collaboration think, “Maybe so!”
We have a new galactic neighbor: Reticulum II. It has an unusually high amount of dark matter in it, according to Fermilab’s Dark Energy Survey (DES) and the Dark Energy Camera (DECam).
