Dark Flow

The universe is far stranger than anything we can truly contemplate. From the big bang, black holes, dark matter, giant diamond stars, and exoplanets coated in burning ice, one truly doesn’t have to look too far to find something that is mind-boggling or hard to comprehend. On today’s list of W-T-F’s, is a relatively new cosmic phenomena called “dark flow.” (I again, find it kind of ironic that we use the word ‘dark’ so often. Each time it usually means ‘we have no idea, really.’)
