Storyline

Scientists hunt for dark matter in the strangest of places. They know where it is, what it does and can sort of see it if they look in the right way. They just can't quite figure out what it is or how to get their hands on it even though it's everywhere. But it is well understood compared to dark energy which is an even bigger mystery.

Dark Matter
16 February 2015 | by (Nashville, Tennessee) – See all my reviews

Dark matter holds stars and galaxies together, while dark energy tries to drive them apart. Dark energy will win as the universe will be torn apart. Gravitational lensing has provided proof of dark matter. It may be composed of particles called WIMPs. Dark matter neither emits nor reflects light. Light passes through it. Dark matter was created at the instant of the Big Bang, and Fermilab is trying to capture it. For a while, I was skeptical about the existence of dark matter and dark energy. That Michio Kaku is convinced of their existence is good enough for me. This show was produced by Rebecca Graham Forde as an episode of The Universe.
