What is dark matter?

Dark matter makes up at least 27% of the universe. Everything on earth only adds up to less than 5% of the universe. Dark matter has been a mystery for a long time and continues to be in so many aspects. What is dark matter, and what do we know about it?

Dark matter is made of Baryonic matter

Dark matter is made of natural matter like the ones on earth, including protons, neutrons, and electrons as the traditional building blocks.

Dark matter is made of tiny black holes

Stephen Hawking in 1974 predicted that dark matter goes back to the big bang and is made of black holes. Since then, scientists have been investigating this theory.

Dark matter is made of non-Baryonic matter

Dark matter is not baryonic at all. It is made of more exotic particles like axions or Weakly Interactive Massive Particles (WHIMPs).

Dark matter is made of axions

In the 1970s, Scientists proposed axions as small particles that help balance neutrons and make them symmetrical. Because of the vast number of axions, scientists proposed them as candidates of dark matter in the universe.

Dark matter is made of WIMPs

Weakly Interacting Massive Particles (WIMPS) have been attractive candidates for what may make up dark matter. Scientists place hope on WIMPs as particles that would connect the large cosmic scale of physics to the standard models of physics.

Dark matter is made of a combination of particles

Dark matter is made of a combination of Barynoic material which is normal matter and non-Baryonic matter which is the non-traditional matter that is not made of atoms with protons, neutrons, and electrons.

Dark matter is made of a combination of Baryonic and non-Baryonic material

Dark matter does not have to be one thing but can be a combination of particles including Baryonic and non-Baryonic matter.

Dark matter does not exist

Scientists make a lot of assumptions when trying to explain the universe through missing matter. Scientists should explain the universe by modifying the theory of gravity. Others say the behavior of the universe should be explained by a godly power instead of the existence of dark matter.

Scientists need to alter the theory of gravity to explain the universe

Scientists haven't been able to detect dark matter either through experimentation at labs or through observation in the sky or underground. Scientists should not look for hidden dark matter, but rather modify the laws of gravity to account for it.

People need to explain the universe through a godly power

People should not think of unexplainable phenomena in the universe, like the speed of start rotations and others, through missing matter or altering laws of gravity. There is a mysterious godly power keeping the universe together.
