Dark Matter in the Universe

Description:

This 122-page book talks in a simple language about the matter that astronomers cannot see but know exists because of the behavior of the matter that is visible. This type of matter “constitutes about 99% of the total mass of the cosmos”, so its study is of great importance. This subject is “elaborated here from the perspective of astronomy, filling-in the gap in the literature about dark matter, which has focused on the perspectives of physics and cosmology.” The consequence of the study of dark matter is a “multitude of questions and hypothesis that lead humans to new horizons about the concept of matter and the origin of the limits of the universe.”—Fragment taken from the back of the book.
