Synopsis: This week on “Learn Me Something,” Aaron and Rich delve into scientific research behind the concept of “dark matter.” Humans can perceive empty space around them, but is that space truly empty?

Ordinary, observable matter (like stars and planets) makes up a measly 5% of the universe. The other 95% universe is made up of invisible dark energy (68%) and dark matter (27%). That means there’s 95% of the universe that we don’t know about yet.
