Molecular hydrogen H_2, virtually undetectable from space, has long been a viable candidate for the alleged 'dark matter' supposedly accountable for the 'flattening' of the galactic rotation curves. Presented here is a simplified analysis, assuming such molecular hydrogen is uniformly distributed throughout the Milky Way Galaxy's disk, that examines the plausibility of such 'dark matter' providing a definitive gravitational explanation for the observed rotational behavior.
