From the beginning of time to this day, Dark Matter has played a magnificent role in the evolution of the Universe. This discussion group, framed between science art and literature, aims to explore the multiple facets of this mysterious form of matter. Three selected pieces of text will be presented as examples of the impact of the dark and elusive in how we perceive physics, culture and everyday life. The evening will encourage the open discussion between participants on the individual texts, but also aim to identify the differences and similarities in the pieces’ attempt to capture the subject. Refreshments will be provided and the pieces of text can be accessed via links on Eventbrite.
The texts for discussion will be:
Symmetry Magazine: The origins of dark matter.
From the primordial soup of the Big Bang to freeze-out and the WIMP miracle.
Chantal Faust: Dark Matters a specially commissioned essay for Laboratory of Dark Matters
This event will launch a beautiful publication of this text which will be available to participants
Kader Attia: The Loop
Planetary Computing (Is the Universe Actually a Gigantic Computer?)
