UTK will join the global celebration of Dark Matter Day on Monday, 30 October at 11.00 a.m. ET.
Join us for a special Q&A Facebook live event on Department of Physics and Astronomy Facebook page with our experts, Dark Matter Detectives, Zurab Berezhiani (Professor, Università degli Studi dell’Aquila and Laboratori Nazionali Del Gran Sasso – INFN), Leah Broussard (Wigner Fellow, Oak Ridge National Laboratory), and Joshua Barrow (University of Tennessee, Knoxville physics graduate research assistant).
Dark Matter is one of the greatest mysteries of modern physics. Astronomical observations provide evidence that there is 5 times more dark matter than ordinary matter and yet it is invisible. Currently, very little is known about the particle nature of this mysterious matter. Learn more about dark matter theories and experiments from our experts.
Theorist Zurab Berezhiani is a key contributor to the study of mirror matter (a potential dark matter candidate). Broussard and Barrow are members of the Neutron Oscillation Group lead by Yuri Kamyshkov, part of UT’s High Energy Physics research group.
Please bring your questions (in the comments section of the Facebook live) on anything that relates to dark matter.
