Dark Matter and the Dinosaurs

Hosted by

Dark matter. It’s stuff that scientists say is all around us, but we can’t see it or touch it or smell it. It doesn’t show up on any of our scientific instruments, but it makes up about 85 percent of stuff in the universe. And when dinosaurs went extinct, could dark matter have played a role in their disappearance?
