B Does ordinary matter displace dark matter?

  1. Dec 15, 2016 #1
    The Milky Way's dark matter halo appears to be lopsided

    The emerging picture of the dark matter halo of the Milky Way is dominantly lopsided in nature.​

    Is the Milky Way's halo lopsided due to the baryonic matter in the Milky Way moving through and displacing the superfluid dark matter, analogous to a submarine moving through and displacing the water?

    Offset between dark matter and ordinary matter: evidence from a sample of 38 lensing clusters of galaxies

    Our data strongly support the idea that the gravitational potential in clusters is mainly due to a non-baryonic fluid, and any exotic field in gravitational theory must resemble that of CDM fields very closely.​

    Is the center of the light lensing through the space neighboring the galaxy clusters and the center of the galaxy clusters themselves offset due to the galaxy clusters moving through and displacing the superfluid dark matter, analogous to submarines moving through and displacing the water?
