Several independent observations of the galactic core suggest hitherto unexplained sources of energy. The most well known case is the 511 keV line which has proven very difficult to explain with conventional astrophysical positron sources. A similar, but less well known mystery is the excess of gamma-ray photons detected by COMPTEL across a broad energy range ∼ 1 − 20 MeV. Such photons are found to be very difficult to produce via known astrophysical sources. We show in this work that dark… CONTINUE READING
