Hello all,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am still an undergraduate, but I would like to ask a really naive question. From a cosmological point of view, does the necessity for the introduction of Dark Matter and Dark Energy in order to satisfy our current models of prediction mean that our models are fundamentally flawed?

I suppose I don't understand why they must be introduced, can someone help me understand why?

Thank you.
