In 1998, astronomers discovered that the expansion of the universe is speeding up, possibly due to the "dark energy," that makes up 2/3 of the universe. What is dark energy? It might be a modern version of the "cosmological constant," an idea that Albert Einstein invented in 1916 and rejected in 1934. If he'd stuck to his guns, he might have become a famous physicist!
