Dark Energy Survey reveals most accurate measurement of universe's dark matter
Science Daily

Dark Energy Survey scientists have unveiled the most accurate measurement ever made of the present large-scale structure of the universe. These measurements of the amount and 'clumpiness' (or distribution) of dark matter in the present-day cosmos were made with a precision that, for the first time, rivals that of inferences from the early universe by the European Space Agency's orbiting Planck observatory.

"Dark matter" is matter whose existence is known by its gravitational effects, but undetectable by electromagnetic radiation.

Clumpiness? *looks at instructions* Well, there's your problem. You were supposed to beat the mixture at high speed for two minutes.
