ritey, i done a lil research into this, and it enters into the topics of black body radiation an all that
all dark matter is, is a cellestial body in space. or a star more specifically that has died (gone supernova or collapsed in on itself etc) and is now
a solid black entity. Because of their lack of reflective potential, they are literally invisible to any telescopes, optic or energy-scanning. the
only force these give out is gravitic energy.
Dark Matter is still a theory, but a universally accepted one. seeing as how you can't see them, you can't prove them. but their evidence is there.
it was first noticed when scientists identified that the orbits of distant planets/stars seemed to be affected by some unknown force. The Conclusion?
Black bodies or Dark Matter. they're there, but since they don't reflect light they're pretty much invisible unless you can get to an ecliptic
Like i said, all theoretical. Oh and on Dark Energy, not really came across that before. i couldn't really understand what would make energy "dark"
but if someone knows, be good to hear about it!
