    According to all the great eggheads out there who tested a supposed galaxy simulator found that it couldn't sustain itself with any known means of gravity as gravity only accounts for ~1/10 of what keeps the galaxy together, thus came up with dark matter, as a substitude for the rest of the unknown elements.

    I wonder if any got the source data of how they tested the galaxy simulator with, as I couldn't find any data myself? :?

    Dark matter was proposed as an explanation for galaxies staying together after astronomers OBSERVED that the stars in the periphery of galaxies were going too fast for the galaxy to stay together if all the mass was in the stars. Simulations came later.

    Use google scholar with appropriate search terms and their are numerous papers on large scale simulations of stellar motions in the galaxy.
