Dark Matter Day on Monday 29th October 2018
Something really dark has arrived at Dynamic Earth
This October, prepare for something really dark. We’re showcasing dark matter research. Come and find out more about this exciting area of research. Planets, stars, asteroids, galaxies – the things that we can actually see – make up less than 5% of the total universe. Research suggests that a large proportion of the rest of the universe is composed of strange substances known as ‘dark matter’ and ‘dark energy’.
Come and find out for yourself how scientists are hunting for dark matter. See a model of an underground mine where the hunt is underway and a mine safety suit worn by researchers to keep them safe 1km underground. Take a look at models of some of the best detectors around and speak with researchers working in this area right now.
It’s all at Dynamic Earth on 29 October. Don’t miss out!
