Have you ever wondered what makes up everything in our universe? And how much of it goes into creating such an endless space? Well wonder no more! This infographic breaks down all of the “stuff” that makes up our vast universe, including the many elements you learned about back in chemistry class. Surprisingly these elements only make up a small 5% of the universe, which is referred to by scientists as matter.
The most abundant element found in matter is hydrogen, which makes up a whopping 75% of it! With Helium making up another 23%, the other 2% is made up of all the other elements we know of. This small percentage of the universe is the only part that scientists can really understand and study.
The other 95% of the universe is made up of dark energy and dark matter, neither of which scientists truly understand as they’re not visible to us by normal means. Take a trip through this infographic that gives a small glimpse into our giant universe.
