PASADENA, Calif., April 17 (UPI) — Renowned theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking, speaking in California, said the next breakthrough in cosmology will come from the universe’s dark side.
“The missing link in cosmology is the nature of dark matter and dark energy,” Hawking said Tuesday while delivering a lecture on the origin of the universe at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena.
He cited data from telescope observations indicating “normal matter is only 5 percent of the energy density of the known universe; 27 percent is dark matter, 68 percent is dark energy,” the Los Angeles Times reported.
