The Milky Way’s galactic center.


A new paper reports that very-high-energy gamma rays coming from the center of the Milky Way originate from dark matter collisions.

The burden of proof to claim new physics is high.


One must show that the surprising features in the data are not explained by systematic uncertainties or other plausible astrophysics.


It will take time for other dark matter experiments to confirm or deny Hooper and Goodenough’s findings.
