Studies of dark matter particles are done , or by attempt to produce it ( i.e. by LHC ) or by searching indirect signs of it ( let think to Pamela signal for possible decay of dark matter particles in high energy electron ) In this paper it’s showed a new way to study dark matter and dark energy too . , The paper starts with a description of the citizen science project Galaxyzoo with an hint to its huge scientific results In this project low-middle redshift galaxies of SSDS database are classified from point of view of their morphology . After the description it’s showed as to widen this study to high or very high redshift galaxies databases Done it will be possible to compare galaxies cataloguing in the real universe with the features of galaxies in virtual universe produced by supercomputer simulations and , . because of simulations start from hypotheses on the features of dark matter and dark energy it will be possible to determine the features themselves . Final consideration will be done on rising impact of citizen science also in field until now reserved to professional scientists
