Open Questions: Alternative theories of gravity
Sites with general resources
The MOND pages
- Collection of links and pages with information on the theory
of "Modified Newtonian Dynamics" as an alternative to dark matter
for providing an explanation of galaxy rotation curves. In
addition to the external links, are
frequently-asked questions and critiques of the evidence
for dark matter. The pages are maintained by
Surveys, overviews, tutorials
Mystery of the missing mini-galaxies
- August 2009 New Scientist article.
"The Milky Way should be surrounded by thousands of tiny
galaxies, but we've only seen about two dozen. That spells
trouble for gravity as we know it."
Gravity's dark side
- June 2006 article from
Physics World, by
"Despite decades of searching, the "dark matter" thought to
hold galaxies together is still nowhere to be found. Matthew
Chalmers describes how some physicists think it makes more
sense to change our theory of gravity instead."
