Abstract

The rotation curve of a disc galaxy plots the orbital speeds of visible stars or gas increasing with the radial distance from the galaxy center. This differs from the orbital speeds of star/planets and planet/moons systems in which the velocity of planets or moons orbiting around the stars or planets decreases with distance. Dark matter and other schemes have been proposed to explain the rotation curve. In this paper, we propose and demonstrate that it is possible to derive the rotation curve from new development in string theory, the universal wave function interpretation of string theory. We show that there exist long-range vibrations in the universal wavefunction interpretation of string theory. The energy produced by these long-range vibrations may explain rotation curves with the orbital speeds increasing the radial distance from the galaxy center
