"The two largest pieces of the Universe that we know the least about, yet nothing less than the ultimate fate of the Universe will be determined by them."

Dark matter and dark energy have always freaked me out/interested me ever since watching Discovery Channel specials about them.

From dark energy and string theory to the end of the Universe, these are the unanswered cosmic conundra that are still baffling scientists.

Astronomers have discovered a massive galaxy made almost entirely of dark matter. Called Dragonfly 44, the galaxy is basically 99.99 percent dark matter.

The second largest component of the universe is dark matter. The truth is, we understand little of what it is, and more of what it is not.

What is Dark Matter? The second largest component of the universe is dark matter. The truth is, we understand little of what it is, and more of what it is not.

The possible outcomes to the fate of the Universe rest on the 95% of it we have currently no idea about: dark matter and dark energy

THE UNIVERSE CONSISTS OF  5 %VISIBLE MATTER  25% DARK MATTER  70% DARK ENERGY

The universe consists of visible matter (the stuff we see) dark matter (matter that fills the space in our universe that we can't see at all) dark energy (which is stronger than gravity and causes the universe to expand)

Dark Matter and Dark Energy

Dark Matter and Dark Energy -- what if the construction of the universe reflected the construction of consciousness. What if we thought we were special enough for that to be true.

The landmark detection paves the way to detect more neutron star collisions and probe the mysteries of dark energy.

Dark energy is real, say astronomers

Dark energy is real, say astronomers — Dark energy, a mysterious substance thought to be speeding up the expansion of the Universe is really there, according to a team of astronomers at the University of Portsmouth and LMU University Munich.

The galaxy cluster Abell 1689 is famous for the way it bends light in a phenomenon called gravitational lensing. A new study of the cluster is revealing secrets about how dark energy shapes the universe. Full story.
