Dark matter - The gravity in the universe that has no known origin.

Dark matter is not a very good name. The real mystery is that there is some source of gravity that nobody has been able to explain. So while it is called dark matter, it can more accurately be described as some unknown source of gravity.

Nobody actually knows what it is. It's one of the great mysteries of science.
