Could pulsars explain the positron excess?

Invoking dark matter as a means to explain the excess of positrons observed last year by the (AMS-02) experiment might not be necessary, according to physicists in Europe. Instead, they say, the entire dataset can be explained purely in terms of known ... [Published Physicsworld.com - 5 hours ago]

Quotes

EMC Corporation has announced results of the seventh EMC Digital Universe study, entitled "The Digital Universe of Opportunities: Rich Data and the Increasing Value of the Internet of Things"
...can recreate the AMS-02 data, including the spike, without resorting to dark matter, although that does not necessarily rule it out as an option. "It is still possible to vary the astrophysical parameters to include a dark-matter contribution and be compatible with observations" Di Mauro told physicsworld.com. However, when it comes to explaining the unexpected peak, the team points the finger at pulsars instead
"Soon I was fascinated by problems like dark matter and dark energy, and I wanted to learn more about physics," he said. "The summer I graduated from high school, physicists at CERN found the Higgs boson. I stayed up, into the wee hours of the morning on July 4, 2012, to watch the live webcast of the results."
