    Is dark matter a crock?
    (2007) Kenneth Nicholson publishes a new method using Newton's law of gravitation to explain how the existing mass distribution of a galaxy without dark matter is sufficient to account for the rotation velocity profile. The method divides the galaxy into a series of rings subdivided into constant density segments. Each segment will cause an acceleration on a test mass at a given radius. The total acceleration at a given radius by the interactions of the mass in the rings with their appropriate densities is then calculated. The method shows that galactic rotation naturally deviates from the virial theorem and the flat rotation profiles come out spontaneously without further assumptions such as dark matter or MOND.

    Interesting (as are most physicists) but I believe there is a lot of controversy about Nicholson - there ought to be, too. I am having trouble finding a "Nicholson critique"

    I read Magueijo's book, thought it was enjoyable and a good read, a revealing look at the scientific process too.

    Hard seems even more kinky than you Angus, maybe I have got a worthy challenger at last?

    Experiment matches theory.
    Reactions: a) we're so smart, and b) Yawn.

    That's great! It would have been expensive to have to repeat the experiment.

    True. There is only physics that agrees with MY theory.

    Blimey I thought Mary was only an expert on unicorns and jumping out of cakes, I didn't know she was the world's foremost scientist.

    Excuse me. An understandable error. I meant +my+ theory.

    So if the data supports your theory, it are good data and the experiment doesn't need to be redone. If the data don't support your theory then it is bad data, keep experimenting until you get data that do. Do wah data, dip dit ditty wah wah.

    Where did you get to? Or should one not ask?
