Dark matter may only be detected by its gravitational effects. These would be greatest close to the big bang.

So why is all this so important ? Well, for one thing, being able to directly examine gravitational waves will give us a new tool with which we can observe the universe around us, and which provide us with new insights not obtainable from the EM spectrum.
