Dark matter intrigues me. We are surrounded by and permeated by these crazy invisible particles none of which have been directly detected. Yep. Dark matter particles are everywhere — inside us, around us, out in space, inside the earth. Only dark matter’s effects give scientists a clue of its existence. And, what really trips me out, is that dark matter and dark energy are the majority of the universe. Like 96% of it. Holy moly. Dark matter matters a lot but we don’t know exactly how or why! So wonderfully weird.
Listen to our “Dark Matters“:
“Dark matter is a very big mystery,” Barkana says. “We know it’s most of the matter in the universe, but we have no idea about its properties.”
