Black ‘lumps’ are found by typing in Einstein’s theory of general relativity

Astronomers have used a principle first proposed by Albert Einstein 100 years ago to map the distribution of dark matter in unprecedented detail. The team’s approach was able to reveal the presence of dark matter “clumps” between galaxies, showing how this mysterious substance is distributed on small scales.

Fluctuations in observed dark matter, detected between a distant quasar (or a bright light source supported by a supermassive feeding black hole) and the distance between that quasar and Earth can help constrain the properties of unobservable matter.
