Geek Out: "Dark matter" explained through animation

(CBS) - Want to watch a cool video and learn something today at the same time? Great!

Then you should definitely check out the above animation that explains very clearly a scientific concept and term you've probably heard thrown around over time: dark matter.

The video was done by a group called "PhD Comics" who have a very cool, kinetic and informative style in the way they explain and visualize science so that just about anyone can understand. If you liked their video, be sure to check out more of their work by going to their website HERE.
