VANCOUVER - Astronomers have looked 2.6 billion light years away to create one of the most detailed maps yet of the mysterious dark matter in the universe, something that fills much of the space between galaxies and perhaps holds together the universe.

They're learning where to find dark matter, how it behaves and what effect it has on visible matter. It behaves like visible matter in that it has gravity and bends light. Stars and galaxies are drawn to it thus causing violent events. Interesting stuff! Now if only had some idea what it is and what other properties it has!
