  • The following is a short comment on the recent claim made by van Dokkum and collaborators about the existence of a low surface brightness galaxy, NGC1052-DF2, not containing dark matter. A discovery used by the authors to both reject proposals of a failure of Newtonian dynamics in the low acceleration regime (e.g., MOND), and prove the dark matter hypothesis is correct. It is shown here that the claim in untenable.
