The claimed detection of a diffuse galaxy lacking dark matter represents a possible challenge to our understanding of the properties of these galaxies and galaxy formation in general. The galaxy, already identified in photographic plates taken in the summer of 1976 at the UK 48-in Schmidt telescope, presents normal distance-independent properties (e.g. colour, velocity dispersion of its globular clusters). However, distance-dependent quantities are at odds with those of other similar galaxies… 

A Second Galaxy Missing Dark Matter in the NGC 1052 Group

The ultra-diffuse galaxy NGC1052-DF2 has a very low velocity dispersion, indicating that it has little or no dark matter. Here we report the discovery of a second galaxy in this class, residing in

The Distance of the Dark Matter Deficient Galaxy NGC 1052–DF2

We recently inferred that the galaxy NGC 1052–DF2 has little or no dark matter and a rich system of unusual globular clusters. We assumed that the galaxy is a satellite of the luminous elliptical

Dark matter and no dark matter: on the halo mass of NGC 1052

The NGC 1052 group, and in particular the discovery of two ultra-diffuse galaxies with very low internal velocity dispersions, has been the subject of much attention recently. Here we present

A Disk and No Signatures of Tidal Distortion in the Galaxy “Lacking” Dark Matter NGC 1052-DF2

Using ultra-deep imaging (μ g = 30.4 mag arcsec−2; 3σ, 10″ × 10″), we probed the surroundings of the first galaxy “lacking” dark matter (DM) KKS2000[04] (NGC 1052–DF2). Signs of tidal stripping in

Recently, van Dokkum et al. presented an important discovery of an ultra-diffuse galaxy, NGC1052-DF2, with a dark matter content significantly less than predicted from its stellar mass alone. The

The ultra-diffuse galaxy NGC 1052-DF2 with MUSE

The so-called ultra-diffuse galaxy NGC 1052-DF2 was announced to be a galaxy lacking dark matter based on a spectroscopic study of its constituent globular clusters. Here we present the first

Recent observations revealed a mysterious ultra diffuse galaxy, NGC1052-DF2, in the group of a large elliptical galaxy, NGC1052. Compared to expectations from abundance matching models, the dark

The Galaxy “Missing Dark Matter” NGC 1052-DF4 is Undergoing Tidal Disruption

The existence of long-lived galaxies lacking dark matter represents a challenge to our understanding of how galaxies form. Here, we present evidence that explains the lack of dark matter in one such

Modified gravity theories in light of the anomalous velocity dispersion of NGC1052-DF2

Recent observations of ultra-dwarf galaxy NGC1052-DF2 started an interesting discussion between dark matter hypothesis and modified gravity theories. Reported low velocity dispersion (< 10.5 km/s at

A New Method to Constrain the Origins of Dark-matter-free Galaxies and Their Unusual Globular Clusters

We present a novel method to constrain the past collisional evolution of observed globular cluster (GC) systems, in particular their mass functions. We apply our method to a pair of galaxies

An Enigmatic Population of Luminous Globular Clusters in a Galaxy Lacking Dark Matter

We recently found an ultra diffuse galaxy (UDG) with a half-light radius of Re = 2.2 kpc and little or no dark matter. The total mass of NGC1052–DF2 was measured from the radial velocities of bright

We present an analysis of archival HST/ACS imaging in the F475W (g475), F606W (V606), and F814W (I814) bands of the globular cluster (GC) system of a large (3.4 kpc effective radius) ultra-diffuse

Missing dark matter in dwarf galaxies

We use cosmological hydrodynamical simulations of the APOSTLE project to examine the fraction of baryons in CDM haloes that collect into galaxies. This ‘galaxy formation efficiency’ correlates
