Celebrate the Unseen: Attend a Dark Matter Day EventExternal link

The events, planned on and around the formally recognized day on October 31, 2017, will engage the public in discussions about dark matter, which together with dark energy makes up about 95 percent of the mass and energy in our universe. Though we know through its gravitational effects that dark matter greatly dwarfs the visible matter in our universe, we know little about it. Read More »
