Due to minimize the Covid risk, the event is open only for KCL students and employees

Don’t worry, but we are surrounded by mysterious and elusive “Dark Matter”, which makes up 80% of all the matter in the universe but doesn’t reflect or emit any light, meaning that it is totally invisible. So how can we find direct evidence for the existence of dark matter? On 28 October, a group of scientists from King’s College London will introduce you to the science of Dark Matter. We will discuss the indirect evidence for its existence from astrophysics and cosmology, theories about the nature of dark matter, and the exciting experiments happening right now to try and detect it in the laboratory. You will have a chance to ask any questions you have about Dark Matter.
