Re: MOND ?

Such a theory might be able to model dark energy but it won't likely work for dark matter.

Gravitation lensing has been used to as a means to observe the concentrations of dark matter (whatever it may be) around remote galaxies. These observations indicate that concentrations vary independently of the amount of visible matter. So a simple change to the gravitational equation is unlikely to fit these observations.
