    Dark Matter
    Dark Matter is hypothesized to be a large part of what makes up the total mass of the universe. However, it is a type of matter that cannot be seen directly, nor does it emit or absorb any kind of light/electromagnetic radiation. Dark Matter is only theorized to exist because of its identifiable gravitational effects on visible matter, radiation, etc. Although Dark Matter is generally accepted by the scientific community, there are still no agreed upon methods for detecting it nor tracing it.

    Summary:
    Scientist in NASA believes to detect dark matter using the Fermi Gamma-Ray Space Telescope. This telescope looks at gamma rays, the highest energy form of light. When two dark matter particles crash into each other, they might release a gamma ray. The Fermi Telescope could theoretically detect these collisions, which would appear as a burst of a gamma ray in the sky.

    Aldrin states:
    Buzz Aldrin (born Edwin Eugene Aldrin Jr.; January 20, 1930) is an American engineer, former astronaut, and Command Pilot in the United States Air Force. As Lunar Module Pilot on the Apollo 11 mission, he and mission commander Neil Armstrong were the first two humans to land on the Moon. Aldrin set foot on the Moon at 03:15:16 on July 21, 1969 (UTC), 9 minutes after Armstrong first touched the surface. One of his first missions was on Gemini 12 where he successfully proved that extravehicular activity (EVA) could be performed by astronauts, spending over 5 hours outside the craft, thus achieving the goals of the Gemini program and paving the way for the Apollo program.

    About this site: This site attempts to disprove that Buzz stated he saw aliens. It states,
    "Aldrin believes what he is saying emotionally but has doubts intellectually. His ego, on a highly spiritual level, is solidly involved. He has a firm belief in what he saw but logical awareness that he cannot explain what he saw; therefore he thinks he should be doubted."

    About this site: This website explains Buzz and Armstrong's relationship. It talks about the many differences between them and how they didn't remain close after the mission. It states,
    "Long term relationships are built on compatibility of interests and temperament; Armstrong and Aldrin were about as different as two astronauts could be. Armstrong was the ultimate technical test pilot type. Precise. Cool. Skillful. A master of the machine he commanded and of its capabilities. He had little use for theory—he was there to take his machine out on a mission and make it do what it was supposed to do. Aldrin was more of a prototype for the scientist/astronaut who would be a mainstay of the shuttle missions. Sure, he was a capable and aggressive fighter pilot, but he also had a graduate degree in orbital mechanics and did his thesis on the theoretical basis of space rendezvous"

    Submitted: October 23, 2015
    Overview: The article page is mostly based on the 20th anniversary of the first confirmed planet around a sun-like star found or located. Therefore, in celebration, leaders in the field of Exoplanet observations chose and provided pictures of their favorites among the other 2,000 known Exoplanets. Although, the one that stood out to me the most was Kepler-22b, because the planet orbits in a star's habitable zone. It's a possible water-like planet. This makes my mind race with the endless possibilities of what life-force could live on Kepler-22b.
