et al. 2015, ApJS, 216, 28) is now available in Browse and
Xamin, along with the
catalog of 383 possible optical, other X-ray and/or S-Z

Hubble, Chandra Find Clues that May Help Identify Dark Matter (27 Mar 2015)
Using observations from the Hubble Space Telescope and Chandra
X-ray Observatory, astronomers have found that dark matter does not slow down
when colliding with itself, meaning it interacts with itself less than
previously thought. Harvey et al. (2015,
Science, 347, 1462) argue that this finding narrows down
the options for what this mysterious substance might be.
