Dynamics of the Milky Way Dwarf Satellites (25'+5')
 
I will discuss recent progress in understanding the dark matter distributions of 
the Milky Way dwarf satellite 
population. I will focus on several topics, including: determination of the mass-
to-light ratios of the least luminous 
known galaxies, using future proper motion measurements to constrain the 
central density of dwarf satellites, and 
using measurements of the dark matter distributions to predict annihilation 
signals from the faintest dwarfs. I will 
discuss implications that all of these results have for the formation of galaxies at 
the smallest mass scales and for 
the nature of dark matter.
