« NGC2419 - a crucible for theories of gravity and globular cluster formation »

Does Modified Newtonian Dynamics work on globular cluster scales? Do globular clusters possess mini dark matter halos? In this talk I will address these two fundamental questions, presenting our recent analyses of the globular cluster NGC 2419. This Galactic satellite is both extremely distant and extremely massive, making it the best laboratory we have at present to assess these issues.
