The Universe consists of 23% dark matter, 73% dark energy, and only – 4% ordinary matter.
By measuring the motion of galaxies, and of stars inside galaxies, astronomers have been able to determine that there exists also some matter that we cannot see. They know that because even though they cannot see it, they measure the effects of their gravity on these stars and planets. This is what we called “dark matter”.
There is also something that makes up most of the Universe and that we refer to as “dark energy”. The nature of this dark energy is completely unknown, but we know it behaves quite differently from regular matter. It is believed it has an opposite effect to gravity pushing everything apart and thus contributing to the expansion of the Universe.
