In science:

Even the much reduced current values (τ6 ≡ 106 τ ∼ 1.5: Popowski et al. 2001; Alfonso et al. 2003) can be explained only if all the mass that the circular-speed curve can accommodate in the central few kiloparsecs is invested in stars (Bissantz & Gerhard 2002).
Dark Matter in Galaxies: Conference Summary
The analysis of the COBE near-IR light distribution by Bissantz & Gerhard (2002) provides our best estimate of the distribution of stars near the centre.
Dark Matter in Galaxies: Conference Summary
If these stars contain al l the mass that is allowed in the centre, Bissantz & Gerhard conclude that τ6 = 1.27.
Dark Matter in Galaxies: Conference Summary
If we exclude cluster-centre galaxies, the dynamics of stars provides at best weak evidence for DM: the data favour some DM at R ∼ 2Re , but what there is does not prevent the circular speed dropping in near Keplerian fashion at R ∼> 2Re (Gerhard, Romanowsky).
Dark Matter in Galaxies: Conference Summary
For our own Galaxy, data on the microlensing towards the bulge-bar system likewise suggest that dark matter does not dominate in the central parts (Bissantz & Gerhard 2002).
