It’s time for another story challenge! I know that some of you really like the challenge posts, and I hope that they’re useful for all of you. I have to admit that I’m really looking forward to our Christmas break, it should give me some time to catch up on the blog, and hopefully provide everyone with some stronger content. Anyway, you all know the rules for the story posts, but for those of you who are new: You must write a story of at least a hundred words, and not more than five hundred (if you want to post it as a comment – if it’s just for yourself, then it can be as long as you want). The story must be about the theme given in this post. So, if the theme I give you is Life, don’t write a story about the lord of the underworld. If the theme is War, don’t write a story about a farmer planting his crops. Themes are very broad, so it really shouldn’t be hard to stay within a given theme, but I teach, so I know that some people have trouble with this.
Your theme: Dark Matter
If you follow science at all, then you’ve probably heard of dark matter and dark energy. At their most simple these terms refer to cosmological matter and energy that we are confident exists, but don’t really know anything about. I’m including a link to a basic article explaining both dark energy and dark matter.
