Hi SunShaker,

I see two ways we could go with this:

  • I could tell you that light does not bend around dark matter like air around a car in a wind tunnel, and that light traveling directly at dark matter will travel straight through it, and that the gravity of dark matter bends light the same way as any other matter, and you could say, "Oh. Never mind."

  • Or, you could insist that you're correct and that light does actually bend around dark matter, in which case I'll promote this thread.
