Over the past two decades, our understanding of our universe has deepened dramatically, while also revealing a fundamental mystery. It now appears that approximately 96 percent of the universe is composed of components called “dark matter” and “dark energy.” Their story is bound up with cosmology—the study of the universe’s origin—as well as the formation and evolution of galaxies and the ultimate fate of the universe. Astrophysicist Christopher Johns-Krull, Ph.D., explains what scientists currently understand about these topics, how they reached these conclusions and what experiments are underway and on the horizon to illuminate the mysteries of dark matter, dark energy and the fate of the universe.
