OR150, Olin-Rice Science Center

Only about 5 percent of the known universe is composed of stars, planets, gas, and everything else we can see or detect. Well, what makes up the rest of it? It's called dark matter (and dark energy), but no one knows what it really is. This is one of the greatest mysteries of the century, but researchers like Prof. Vuc Mandic from the U of M are working to unravel the secret of dark matter. Join us for his talk about his work on the super-CDMS experiment, the goal of which is to directly detect the elusive dark matter,

4:00 pm - Tea and snacks by prof offices.
