  • There is evidence that dark energy is about 68 percent of the mystery mass and energy. The remaining 27 percent is generally acknowledged to be dark matter, even though it is not visible and eludes direct detection and measurement

  • Scientists could detect the dark matter easily if the clocks go out of sync by more than a billionth of a second
