+ - NASA to discuss Hubble Ring Of Dark Matter finding

mknewman writes: NASA will hold a media teleconference at 1 p.m. EDT on May 15 to discuss the strongest evidence to date that dark matter exists. This evidence was found in a ghostly ring of dark matter in the cluster CL0024+17, discovered using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope. The ring is the first detection of dark matter with a unique structure different from the distribution of both the galaxies and the hot gas in the cluster. The discovery will be featured in the June 20 issue of the Astrophysical Journal. http://www.nasa.gov/home/hqnews/2007/may/HQ_M07051 a_HST_Dark_Matter_update.html
