Air Date:
Heard On University Of The Air
Strong gravitational lensing as observed by the Hubble Space Telescope in Abell 1689 indicates the presence of dark matter 

Ninety-five percent of the universe is invisible. How do we know it’s there and what is it? We’ll take a look at the dark side of the universe, including the mysterious forces that affect the spin of our galaxy and the processes that build and destroy the estimated two trillion galaxies out there. Along the way we’ll catch sight of the Big Bang that started it all and get some notion as to where it’s all going.
