I Can the MOND theory be experimentally tested?

  1. Feb 12, 2019 #1
    I have read about LISA Pathfinder. Can a satellite with gravitational test instruments, such as a torsional pendulum, test the MOND theory at L1 and L2?
    Maybe both MOND and dark matter are needed to explain velocities of some remote stars and the formation of large galactic structures.

    No. The acceleration is way too high.
