In modern physics, Dark Energy is a hypothosized form of energy, connected to Dark Matter, and said to permeate most if not all of space. It is believed to be the most abundant thing in the universe, with conventional matter making up less than 5% and dark matter making up apx 27%
Dark Energy is suppose to be responsible for the expansion of the universe, but like Dark Matter, its name comes from how impossible it is to detect, its existence 'known' only by reaching the logical conclusion of a conundrum, why does the universe expand?
Dark Energy is believed to be the reverse of Gravity, a warp in space time, but instead of pulling things, towards it, it pushes things away
