Scientists design experiments to attempt to figure out what it is, but no one truly knows what composes dark matter.

Original attempts at studying dark matter referred to dark matter as baryonic, which is a word used to describe baryons, or quark based particles. Quarks make up “normal” subatomic particles, and so when referring to dark matter as baryonic, physicists were assuming that dark matter was made up of protons, electrons, and neutrons, just like all types of known matter, yet that would infer that we would be able to observe dark matter through telescopes. In the 1970s, astrophysicists and astronomers thought browns dwarves could be composed of dark matter (Arguelles et…

    Dark energy is a term scientists use to describe the unknown source of energy which causes the universe to accelerate outwards rapidly, causing the known universe to expand. This is another concept which is directly applicable to the theory of increasing entropy in the universe. The universe is theorized to have begun in a much more condensed and orderly state and began to expand and accelerate outwards from the origin point of the universe. As the universe continues to expand, it also becomes…
