Fermi Data Tantalize With New Clues To Dark Matter (03 Apr 2014)
A new study of gamma-ray light from the center of our galaxy makes
the strongest case to date that some of this emission may arise from dark
publically available Fermi data, researchers have developed new maps showing
that the galactic center produces more high-energy gamma rays than can be
explained by known sources and that this excess emission is consistent with
some forms of dark matter.
