Abstract: Almost immediate arrival of Gamma Rays GRB170817 and Gravitational Waves GW170817 from Neutron Star Merger that Fermi Satellite and LIGO-VIRGO collaboration observed provides an independent evidence for the existence of dark matter. I will talk about this recent work of ours which was cited by LIGO as well as various scientific news media circles around the world.
