Description:

This website offers a very complete introduction to Dark Matter. First 'observed' in 1933 by Fritz Zwicky, when studying the mass distribution of the Coma Cluster, Dark Matter has been a mystery to scientist, because it does not interact with light. The website contains a detailed timeline of scientists who have tried to observe it and their methods. It also presents the theory that Dark Matter is within Galaxies and in between them, filling Galaxy Clusters. The last part is dedicated to explain what types of particles are thought to form this elusive matter
