Dark Matter in the Light
The universe is only as big as the solar systems to humans, but there is a massive amount of uncharted space.
Space is made up of matter, tiny particles, and other pieces that puzzle many scientists. However, they have made a discovery and they call it dark matter.
The concept first came about in the 1930s, by Swiss astronomer, Fritz Zwicky, who, “realized that his measurements of the masses of galaxy clusters showed some of the mass in the universe was ‘missing,’” according to “Where is the Rest of the Universe” by Jesse Emspak on Livescience.
Another issue with dark matter that causes scientists to scratch their chins is based on Einstein’s theory of general relativity.
It states, “that massive objects caused a distortion in space-time,” or gravity bends light, as well, even though light itself is massless. So, something is adding mass to galaxies that cannot be seen.
With advancements in technology, scientists are working to uncover the mysteries of the universe.
