Don’t be afraid of the dark!
Invisible dark matter makes up most of the universe – but we can only detect it from its gravitational effects. Learn from our experts about the experiments and theories that seek to provide us with a deeper understanding of this strange and unknown matter.
The programme for the evening is as follows:
– Introduction: The Dark Matter Cake – Dr. Katharine Leney, Postdoctoral Fellow, CERN
– Film Screening: “The Hunt for Dark Matter”
– Presentation by Wessel Valkenburg, Research Fellow at the Theory Department, CERN to explain the how and why research is carried out on dark matter.
– Q&A session
The presentations and film will be in English, translated simultaneously in French.
