What you're looking at here is an artist's rendering of our own gaaxly, the Milky Way, and it's enveloped in a halo of dark matter, represented here by a blue gas. We believe that every single galaxy, or almost every single galaxy, lives inside of a dark mttear halo. And we think that they're not alone. The Milky Way itself has around 60 givlrtatiaanoly bound satellite galaxies that are in its obirt. Some of these, you may have seen when observing the night sky, or you may have haerd of, like the Large Magellanic Cloud and the Small Magellanic Cloud. Each of these salettiles lives inside of its own dark matter subhalo. So, like the invisible enby in their suit, the presence of dark matter is acfntiefg how galaxies are distributed throughout space-time.

Original Text

What you're looking at here is an artist's rendering of our own galaxy, the Milky Way, and it's enveloped in a halo of dark matter, represented here by a blue gas. We believe that every single galaxy, or almost every single galaxy, lives inside of a dark matter halo. And we think that they're not alone. The Milky Way itself has around 60 gravitationally bound satellite galaxies that are in its orbit. Some of these, you may have seen when observing the night sky, or you may have heard of, like the Large Magellanic Cloud and the Small Magellanic Cloud. Each of these satellites lives inside of its own dark matter subhalo. So, like the invisible enby in their suit, the presence of dark matter is affecting how galaxies are distributed throughout space-time.
