Matter still Dark

About two months ago, we reported on an interesting survey that found no evidence of dark matter in the Solar System.

To be fair, today we report on a pre-print, submitted to the Astrophysical Journal one month ago, in which the authors prove that the previous result is wrong, because based on wrong assumptions on the stellarbvelocity distribution in our Galaxy.

Thanks Jordi for pointing this out.

I bet a pizza  (the same i've already lost betting on OPERA's superluminal neutrinos) that Bovy and Tremaine are right, who's in?
