An analysis of the first three years of Dark Energy Survey data is consistent with predictions from the current best model of the universe. Nevertheless, hints remain from DES and other experiments that matter in the current universe is a few percent less clumpy than predicted.

Just like we orbit the sun and the moon orbits us, the Milky Way has satellite galaxies with their own satellites. Drawing from data on those galactic neighbors, a new model suggests the Milky Way should have an additional 100 or so very faint satellite galaxies awaiting discovery.
Dark matter forms into clumps, where galaxies and satellite galaxies form.
