What on earth?

Stories. A fun way to learn something new.

Once upon a time, Once upon a time, people only knew about the things that they could see. Then, with the help of telescopes, people were able to see things that were far away and too small to be seen with the naked eye. As time went on, people developed theories about things that they couldn't see, like atoms, electrons and even quarks. Some of these things were later confirmed by experiments, but there are still many things that we can't see and don't understand. One of the most mysterious things in the Universe is dark matter. Dark matter is an invisible form of matter that makes up about 27% of the Universe. It doesn't emit or absorb light, so we can't see it. We only know it exists because of the way it affects the things we can see. For example, dark matter makes galaxies rotate faster than they should. It also bends light, which is how we were able to detect it in the first place. There are many theories about what dark matter could be, but we still don't know for sure. It could be a new type of particle, or it could be something more exotic, like a black hole. The truth is, we just don't know. Dark matter is one of the biggest mysteries in astronomy, and scientists are still working to solve it.
