Dark Matter Detective: Unravel the Secrets of the Universe

Dark matter is an elusive and mysterious substance that makes up the majority of the universe's mass. Despite its name, it does not emit, absorb, or reflect light, making it invisible to telescopes and other instruments. Despite this, its presence can be inferred through its gravitational effects on visible matter. In this quiz, you'll get to test your knowledge of dark matter and learn more about its properties, behavior, and impact on our understanding of the universe. From the earliest observations to the latest discoveries, this quiz will cover it all. So come along, and explore the mysterious world of dark matter!
