TNRTB Classic: Dark Matter Behavior

Though numerous observations point to the existence of dark matter, scientists still lack a basic understanding of its nature. Dark matter played a vital role in transforming the hot, dense, isotropic and homogeneous early universe into one filled with galaxies, clusters of galaxies, quasars, stars, and planets—structures necessary for life to exist. Dark matter began clumping together long before normal matter did, and that early clumping led to the growth of these life-essential structures.
