@gargoylezoo: Will do. I liked your answer (and hence +1) but needed to thoroughly read and understand it.

comment Explaining Dark Matter and Dark Energy to layman
@gargoylezoo: (I know this isn't related to the question exactly.) Those parallel and perpendicular lines in your attached picture, what are they called? Do they represent a magnetic field or some other field, or something else? Should there be some effect on them because of Earth?
