The Dark Side Of Things

In recent years, astrophysicists (who were ridiculed for decades for good reasons...) have finally pinned down the most amazing fact about the universe: the stuff we and the stars are made of and that we can see all around us is a tiny fraction of what the whole universe is really made of... about 95% of the universe is built from an unknown type of "stuff" that we cannot see. If that is not freaky enough, most of this dark stuff, about 70% of the whole mass of the universe, is something totally beyond our grasp: it antigravitates, repels... This dark stuff is everywhere around us, and because of it, the universe is undergoing a violent explosive expansion. Lots of cool stuff to write about this that we now know; for now, check out this video: a bit sensationalist, but the content is basically correct:
