Description:

Dark matter is hard to detect directly and interacts with normal matter primarily via gravity. This lesson resource looks at the evidence for dark matter in the universe from cosmological observations, and considers possible candidate particle types for dark matter. It also summarizes some of the recent experimental searches which may have more directly detected dark matter.
