jitterman writes: Space telescopes have captured images of a mammoth collision between two galaxy clusters that have shed some light into the universe's mysterious dark matter, NASA said. The astronomers were able to differentiate between the two substances with a technique known as gravitational lensing in which dark matter appears in blue in the image while ordinary matter, which is mostly in the form of hot gas, looks pink.
