The Modified Newtonian Dynamics (MOND) s a scientific theory proposed by Moti Milgrom as a solution to the missing mass problem in extragalactic astronomy. Rather than invoking some invisible form of dark matter, it hypothesizes a subtle change to the effective force law at extremely low accelerations (< 10-10 m/s/s).
|A single galaxy might seem a little thing to those who consider only the immeasurable vastness of the universe, and not the minute precision to which all things therein are shaped.|
