There’s more to the world than what meets the eye. Scientists believe that 85% of the matter in the Universe is made of an invisible substance they call “dark matter”. While astronomers have been tracking the effects of dark matter for decades, it has so far evaded detection in the laboratory. Its fundamental nature remains a mystery today. Nevertheless, we have many theories for what the true identity of this substance could be and right now we are building experiments to test those ideas.
As part of the international Dark Matter Day on Monday, 31st October we would like to invite you to The University of Sydney for an evening exploring this mysterious substance. We will hear about the evidence for the existence of dark matter, theories of what it might be, and learn about how scientists are searching for it by building detectors in a gold mine right here in Australia! Join us from 6 pm until 7:30 pm to meet our experts and ask them your questions about dark matter. This free event will be held in the Messel Lecture Theatre, Sydney Nano Science Hub (A31) on the Camperdown Campus.
