Description

Recently two groups have reported an unidentified line-like feature in the X-ray spectra of dark matter-dominated objects (galaxies and galaxy clusters) [Bulbul et al.][1] and [Boyarsky et al.][2]. We discuss the signal and consistency of its interpretation in terms of dark matter decay. [1]: http://arxiv.org/abs/1402.2301 [2]: http://arxiv.org/abs/1402.4119
