Darkness in the Universe

Does our universe have a Dark Side? It might. And physicists all over the world are on a mission to uncover the mystery of dark matter that could hold the answers to some *very* big questions. The UK plays a lead role in the search for dark matter as part of a global effort. Find out more about the ‘missing’ parts of the Universe and what the UK is doing to trace them in this video from DMUK and STFC.
