Hey Physics … What Now?!

Dark Matter Animated

Now that that pesky Higgs boson has been all but confirmed, what question will now keep physicists up at night?

Dark matter and dark energy, although their effects have been observed, remain … well, dark. CERN and labs around the world will continue to explore these strange phenomena, which make up as much as 95% of the cosmos.

Jorge Cham from PHD Comics (who also did this mighty fine Higgs ‘toon) put together this animation to explain what it is, what it does, and why it’s the next big frontier in Stuff We Don’t Know™

What else would you like to see physics answer?
