Description:

This website introduces dark matter by first explaining Zwicky's discovery of dark matter when he was studying clusters of galaxies about fifty years ago. It then talks about how astronomers detect dark matter today, its relationship to inflation, and the current theories that propose that dark matter may be either WIMPS or MACHOS.
