A new Dark-Matter-Free Galaxy has been found by Astronomers from Netherlands, the United Kingdom and the United States. An article published by Sci-News on December 7, 2021 states that AGC 114905, a Gas-Rich Ultra-Diffuse Galaxy approximately 248 million light years has been found. Dark-Matter is a hypothetical form of matter, thought to account for approximately 85% of the matter in the Universe. Most experts are of the opinion that Dark-Matter is abundant in the Universe. They think that it has had a strong influence on the structure and evolution of the Universe.
The AGC 114905 is a Low Surface Brightness Galaxy which is located about 248 million light-years (76 megaparsecs) away from earth, in the constellation of Pisces. It is classified as an Ultra-Diffuse Dwarf Galaxy and is almost the size of our own Milky-Way Galaxy and contains about 1000 times fewer stars. It was believed that all Galaxies especially Ultra-Diffuse Dwarf Galaxies can exist only if they are held together by the Dark-Matter. This is redefined by the finding of the new AGC 114905 Dark-Matter-Free Galaxy.
