We now believe that for every gram of atoms that make up animals, planets and stars,
there are 5 times more of a new, fundamentally invisible particle we call Dark Matter.
It doesn’t shine or absorb light and passes right through you like a ghost, so how can
we be so sure it’s out there? Surprisingly, dog toys and wine glasses hold the answer!
