Abstract: A model of galactic dark matter is presented in which the galaxies are considered to be products evolved from gravitational aggregations of large grains of solid matter. The model is based on the idea that dark matter consists of large solid grains and is further grounded in the assumption that extinction by the grains has led to the lack of quasars at large redshifts. The model leads to an expression for luminosity that is consistent with the observed Tully-Fisher relation as well as expressions for the existence and extent of the hot galactic halo gas.
