32Black holes can’t be seen but they can be detected by their “exhaust.” The gravity of black holes causes material to swirl around, heating up as it gets closer and spins faster until it’s glowing white hot. A closer look at the spacing of these quasars also revealed they were not evenly distributed.A European space observatory picked up an unusual signal which astronomers believe to be the first direct detection of dark matter’s signature. The finding could be a historic breakthrough in our understanding of the universe.Invisible dark matter – which neither emits or absorbs light – is believed to account for 85 percent of the matter in the universe, and is thought to explain the gravitational pull that keeps galaxies from flying apart.
