An attempt to experimentally estimate the dark matter mass of our GalaxyAuthor(s): B.V. Vasiliev
The measuring of the reactor neutrinos effect on the beta-decay rate allows us to obtain the efficiency of neutrino registration in this process. In assumption that the phenomenon of beta-decay is caused by the impact of cosmic neutrinos (in the absence of reactor action), the measured registration efficiency leads to determination of the value of a general cosmic neutrino flux in terrestrial conditions. Extending this terrestrial measuring data to the entire Galaxy makes it possible to estimate the mass of its dark matter. The obtained result is in satisfactory agreement with other estimates of the mass of the Galaxy.
