"It's exciting that we found so many stellar streams," said astrophysicist Alex Drlica-Wagner of Fermilab and the KICP. "We can use these streams to measure the amount, distribution and 'clumpiness' of dark matter in the Milky Way. Studies of stellar streams will help constrain the fundamental properties of dark matter." The effort to detect new stellar streams in the Dark Energy Survey was led by KICP graduate student Nora Shipp.
