LDAS Monthly Meeting – The Case for Dark Matter – Dr Matt Bothwell (Hon Pres) – Standalone Farm

31 July @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Dr Matt Bothwell our honorary president will be giving us his talk ‘The Case for Dark Matter’.

Over the past 50 years, astronomers have become increasingly certain that most of the Universe is made up of a mysterious invisible substance that we do not properly understand. This stuff — known as ‘Dark Matter’ — is thought to play an integral role in the evolution of the Universe, and is ultimately responsible for our existence here on Earth. But despite its importance, Dark Matter has never actually been detected! I lay out the observational evidence that has led scientists to believe something which — on the surface — seems so incredibly bizarre.

£2 for members and £3 for visitors.

This is a physical meeting held at Standalone Farm but it will also be available on Zoom.

Please purchase your ticket via MemberMojo to receive the Zoom link if you wish to view from home.
