Dark matter is known to permeate the universe. Scientists believe that the object is most likely small and light to go around undetected.
A team from the Vanderbilt University in Nashville are unravelling the nature of dark matter.
Experts are still trying to decipher the constituents of dark matter, which they have observed their gravitational effects acting upon objects in space. Scientists have decided to use a well-known detector in their study – human skin.
The general hypothesis is that if the dark matter zoomed through the body of person, the effects would be like that of a fired bullet.
It is theorized that the macros of dark matter are most probably harmless, but more research is required, and scientists intend to explore other sources, such as granite.
