This means it does not absorb, reflect or emit light, making it extremely hard to spot. In fact, researchers have been able to infer the existence of dark matter only from the gravitational effect it seems to have on visible matter. Dark…

On this, most physicists agree. But few theorists have ventured to explain what happened “before” the Big Bang, or how the Big Bang came to be. This is because the laws of physics break down at the point of a singularity, such…
