The mystery of dark matter

lyrics

They measured and got / strange results / estimating masses of galaxies
They measured what? / luminous / EM radioactivity
The calculations showed / that they were owed / some mass to fit the theories
Conclusion was / there must be stuff / that you and I cannot see

Evidence came / as it must / in 1933
Thanks to the / Galaxy Cluster Coma / and Fritz Zwicky
he compared / galaxies near the edge / and what we could see
There was more mass there / than luminosity led / all of us to believe

We can't see them / we can't hear them
But we know Dark Matters there!
Thanks to the Virial Theorem
We know Dark Matters there!

It doesn't emit / or reflect and scatter / thats why you can't see dark, dark matter

I'm just a poor boy, give me your sympathy, trying to find something that cannot be seen
Look up to the skys, its trying to hide, from inference and tools we've got on our side
some try with detectors, deep underground, where there are less cosmic rays around
a particle might, hit a cooled atom just right, giving a heat trace that sets off the light

Its hard to find it, but if we're denied it, so many theories shatter
gravitational lensing, causes bending, assists in the theories defending
a galaxys, kinetic energy, is far greater than it should be
if all the mass was what we could see, and virial theorem to be believed
Chorus

We can't see them / we can't hear them
But we know Dark Matters there!
Thanks to the Virial Theorem
We know Dark Matters there!
