Event Overview

Sanford Underground Research Facility

Presenters: Michael Dowding, Daniel Moore, James Haiston Jr., South Dakota School of Mines and Technology

A physics professor and two grad students from the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology recently attended Comic Con where they held a panel discussion about dark matter: what it is (or isn’t) and its role in popular culture. They will re-enact their presentation for Sanford Lab’s Dark Matter Day–in costume.
