universe is filled with all different kinds of celestial
objects, such as our sun, moons, planets, comets,
asteroids, etc. but what we don't know is that this only
represents about 4.6 percent of the visible universe. in
fact, 73 percent is composed of what is called dark
energy and 22.4 percent called dark matter. Their
detection has changed our view of our universe yet we
have no idea what they are or what they are made off.
Top astronomers and astrophysicist are now on the
forefront of discovery, using the largest particle
accelerators found in the Geneva, Switzerland.
