Space: What is dark matter? – BBC World Service, CrowdScience podcast


Dark matter and dark energy make up around 95% of the universe and the remaining segment is normal matter – the stuff we’re all made of. Given that there’s so much of this dark material, could dark life have evolved? That’s what Gautam from Delhi in India asked CrowdScience.

Marnie Chesterton investigates with Dr Matt Middleton, Dr Burçin Mutlu-Pakdil and Dr Renato Costa. They unpick the physics behind dark matter and dark energy and test out some listener theories about what these mysterious mediums might be.

Yoseph from Ogden in the US questions whether black holes could account for the missing matter and it turns out he might just be on to something.
