Scientists may now have their hands on the dark matter, judging from the signals they just got from particles emanating from the phenomenon. Using X-ray observations of galaxies orbiting XMM-Newton telescope, scientists from the European Space Agency (ESA) have been studying signals that they believe to be particles of dark matter.

Astrophysicists from that Ecole Polytechnique Federal de Lausanne (EPFL) Laboratory of Physics and Cosmology (LPPC) and the Leiden University used X-ray from the Andromeda galaxy and the Perseus galaxy cluster to study space studies into dark matter in order to determine if the elusive object is now...
