Datk matter map of the universe
This 3D map of the dark matter in the Universe has been all over the prers today and very impressive it is too.
Apparently dark matter neither reflects nor emits light and it makes up the bulk of the mass of the universe. It is all very fascinating but I do have a big problem - I just can't get my head around this even though I have watched every episode of every incarnation fo Star Trek! If anyone can suggest a simple book with short words and lots of pictures I would be very grateful!
