In a free hybrid event (in-person and live webcast) on October 26, dark matter researchers Katie Mack and Ken Clark will share insights into the ubiquitous, mysterious matter that makes up the majority of stuff in our universe. 

Dark Matter Night will be webcast live from two locations. Starting at 7:30 pm ET, Mack will discuss the theoretical and observational foundations of dark matter at Perimeter Institute, where she holds the Hawking Chair in Cosmology and Science Communication. Clark, an associate professor at the Arthur B. McDonald Canadian Astroparticle Physics Research Institute, will then share experimental approaches that could help solve the riddle of dark matter. We will also feature a behind-the-scenes look at going to SNOLAB, and why and how scientists perform their research there.

Each speaker’s presentation will be simulcast to the live audience at the other institute, and the whole event will be available via free webcast. Additional science demonstrations will be on hand at the McDonald Institute, including tours of the Queen's Observatory.
