Dark Matter Day | Astronomy & Particle Physics Open House Night

It is now thought that Dark Matter makes up 84% of the stuff in our Universe. But what is Dark Matter? And why are scientist confident it exists? Come out to the McDonald Institute and Queen’s Astrophysics Department’s joint Dark Matter Day event to hear talks on the first astronomical hints of Dark Matter’s existence, what it might be made of, and how we are trying to find it. This will be followed by tours of the Queen’s University Observatory and the McDonald Institute Visitor Center, exhibits and activities in Stirling Hall, fun games and activities, and streamed tours of national research facilities.
