The Mystery of Dark Matter Video Game

Created to accompany the Perimeter Explorations "Mystery of Dark Matter" in-class resource, this video game challenges students to apply what they've learned as they add stars, planets, and black holes to a galaxy.

A mystery exists! Galaxies do not seem to have enough mass for stars to orbit at their observed speeds. Galaxies should be flying apart, but they don't. Why not? 

Explore the surreal world of dark matter - one of the universe's greatest mysteries.
