You can't see it, nor can you touch it, still, some scientists say dark matter accounts for the overwhelming majority of mass in our universe. Others have a counter argument. See, scientists believe dark matter exists because that's the only way to explain the gravitational movements of huge bodies like galaxies. But what if it turned out we got gravity all wrong? Are you in the dark about dark matter? So are we, but we'll shed some light on it Monday morning at nine.
