Unveiling the Dark Universe – Aug 14

Throughout history, the Universe has had a way of turning our grandest thoughts upside down. Now, we see that the cosmos is dark: dominated by dark matter and dark energy. With the Dark Energy Survey imaging 1/8th of the night sky — and mapping more than 100 million galaxies — we can get a clearer understanding of the vast Universe we call home.

Wonderfest joins the Mt Tam Astronomy Program in presenting Dr. Alexandra Amon, postdoctoral researcher and Kavli Fellow at Stanford's Kavli Institute for Particle Astrophysics & Cosmology.
