Quotes

...there should be a handful of big satellite galaxies around the Milky Way that are visible with the naked eye, but we don't see that," Kafle said. "When you use our measurement of the mass of the dark matter, the theory predicts that there should only be three satellite galaxies out there, which is exactly what we see: the Large Magellanic Cloud, the Small Magellanic Cloud, and the Sagittarius Dwarf Galaxy."
...The galaxies are named for their long antennalike "arms. This composite includes images from the Chandra X-Ray Observatory, the Hubble Space Telescope and the Spitzer Space Telescope."
"Stars, dust, you and me, all the things that we see, only make up about 4 per cent of the entire Universe. About 25 per cent is dark matter and the rest is dark energy" he said
