Title Dark Matters

One of the greatest mysteries in the cosmos is that it is mostly dark. Astronomers and particle physicists today are seeking to unravel the nature of the mysterious, but pervasive dark matter which has profoundly influenced the formation of structure in the universe. I will describe various attempts to measure particle dark matter by direct and indirect means. I will conclude by reviewing another dark matter, namely the dark energy problem.
