 +<​blockquote>​Dark Energy certainly sounds catchy but is a terrible terminology:​ It's neither dark nor energy. Instead, it's transparent,​ and (if you divide it by Newton'​s constant) it's an energy-density.. Dark energy can be interpreted as the energy-density of empty space, but I don't find this a good interpretation. Better to think of it as the curvature of empty space.
