Shedding Light on The Universe

Event date: 03/30/2015 Time: 19:00

“In this the “International Year of Light” let us take a trip through time and space to see how our ideas of the universe have evolved. We use light to understand what is out there but what about materials that do not interact with light. We can tell that such material is out there – we call it dark matter – but how do we detect it? It remains unknown causing large gaps in our current understanding…” – Maggie Aderin-Pocock MBE
