Astronomers offer proof of unseen 'darkmatter'
...Astronomers have used darkmatter for 70 years to explain various observations about the universe's behaviour. They have shown that rotating spiral galaxies would fly apart if it were not for the gravitational pull of undetectable matter in addition to their stars. Other observations show that the expansion of the universe is being held back by a force greater than the gravitational pull of visible matter alone...Heh! I'm going to remember the term so I can use it for things I have no explanation for:)
