Could neutrinos solve the missing mass problem?

Neutrinos on their own? Unless the hypothetical "sterile" neutrinos exist the answer's probably no - they're too "hot" (they move too quickly). Mixed dark matter models including neutrinos fell out of favour with the discovery of the acceleration of universal expansion, but they're making a comeback now that the D-star hexaquark's been proposed as a dark matter candidate.

But Neutrinos carry no Mass
Just like PhotonsSource(s): Quantum Entanglement, beats Time and Light Speed....It is the Future

No, there aren't enough.

Which missing mass problem? There is more than one. No, neutrinos do not solve the missing mass problems.

It is possible that the tiny mass of neutrinos could account for the extra gravity of galaxies because there are so many neutrinos. But this is far from proven. Many scientists disagree.
