Title: Is Dark Matter Similar to the Force?

Abstract

When Obi Wan Kenobi explained the Force to Luke Skywalker, he said, "It's an energy field created by all living things. It surrounds us and penetrates us; it binds the galaxy together." The same thing could be said of the invisible, elusive, yet ubiquitous dark matter. Explore the similarities and differences between dark matter and the Force and find out why LLNL studies dark matter.
