Next School of Physics and Astronomy public talk: Dark matter and the hidden cosmos

At 7:00 pm on Thursday 24 May Dr Tommi Tenkanen will deliver the next in our series of Physics and Astronomy public talks. He will outline what we know — and what we don't know — about dark matter, the substance that makes up around 85% of all the matter in the Universe. 

Tommi will describe how we detect, or at least infer, the presence of dark matter and will describe his own research which aims to discover the true nature of this mysterious component of our world.

The talk will be held in the physics lecture theatre in the G O Jones building on Queen Mary’s Mile End campus. It will be suitable for a general, non-specialist audience, and all are welcome.

Admission is free, and there will be an informal drinks reception after the talk. It would help our planning if you could register your attendance here.

Details of forthcoming public talks by members of the School of Physics and Astronomy can be found here.
