A recent publication revealed unexpected
observations about dark matter. In particular, the observed baryonic mass should
probably be sufficient to explain the observed rotation curves (i.e. without dark matter) and their
observations gave an empirical relation for weak accelerations. This present
work demonstrated that the equations of general relativity allow explaining the
term of dark matter (without new matter) in agreement with the results of this
publication and allow retrieving this empirical relation (observed values and
characteristics of this correlation’s curve). These observations constrain
drastically the possible gravitational potential in the frame of general
relativity to explain the term of dark matter. This theoretical solution has
already been studied with several unexpected predictions that have recently
been observed. For example, an article revealed that early galaxies (ten
billion years ago) didn’t have dark matter and a more recent paper showed
unlikely alignments of galaxies. To finish the main prediction of this solution, it is recalled:
the term of dark matter should be a Lense-Thirring effect, around the earth, of
around 0.3 and 0.6 milliarcsecond/year.
