How do electric cars work? What is an electric car? Electric cars use electric motors to power the vehicle, rather than an internal combustion engine.

We keep saying dark matter is so very hard to find. Astronomers say they can see its effects — such as gravitational lensing, or an amazing bendy feat of light that takes place when a massive galaxy brings forward light from other galaxies behind it.
