- what is dark matter and dark energy?
- Universe Explorers
Dark energy has been accepted as the most likely theory to explain why the Universe is constantly and consistently expanding. If we are to assume that this conventional theory is correct and the scientist are right, the best current measurements and estimates propose that dark energy actually makes up roughly 70% of the total energy in the observable Universe. In other words, most of the Universe is invisible to us or, perhaps it would be more accurate to say, we are blind to it.
This, of course, is just scratching the surface, if you would like to know more about what scientists THINK they know, check out the video below;
“Dark matter”, like dark energy, is largely a mystery but is said to be a kind of matter that cannot actually be seen with telescopes but accounts for most of the matter in the Universe. Dark matter has not been detected directly, making it one of the greatest mysteries in modern astrophysics that continues to escape even the greatest minds in the scientific community.
