Title: The Dark Matter at the Heart of Physics
Speaker: Dr. Katie Mack, North Carolina State University
Time/Date: 7:00PM Wed July 31st
Location: Blackman Auditorium, in Ell Hall, Northeastern University
Abstract: Dark matter is one of the most mysterious and essential components of the Universe. It enabled the formation of our own Galaxy and everything we see in the night sky, and yet, it appears to be completely invisible. I'll talk about how astronomy told us dark matter exists, how particle physics might answer the question of its true nature, and why discovering it might reshape our picture of the fundamental physics of the cosmos.
