Illuminating Dark Matter, online – Apr18

Dark matter is the cosmic parent of all vast structures in the night sky, including our own Milky Way galaxy. Yet, we know so very little about this mysterious stuff that constitutes over 80%(!) of the material universe. This online presentation will illuminate our universe’s elusive dark matter, highlighting the ingenious methods that scientists are using to find out what dark matter really is.

Our speaker, physicist Robert McGehee, is a doctoral researcher and teacher at the University of California, Berkeley. He is also a Wonderfest Science Envoy.
