small galaxies and dark matter

7 October 2014

At www.dailygalaxy.com/my_weblog/2014/10/-tiny-fossil-galaxies-of-first-sta… … is an article on the discovery of a couple of very small galaxies in the vicinity of the Milky Way that appear to be dim as they were not spotted by less powerful technology. Immediately they are being explained – as if they have to bed into the consensus model. They were looking for clumps of dark matter and found these fuzzy looking small galaxies. The big question is why they did not become larger galaxies – much brighter and visible. We are told they are faint because they are lacking metals and this must mean they were formed at a stage shortly after Big Bang. These are stars and a galaxy that did not make the usual kind of star progression into all things bright and beautiful. Is it justified to say they are primeval stars?
