The 23rd Elizabeth Spreadbury Lecture
Dark Matters : Prof. Simon White
4:30pm on Wednesday March 6 2013
Our Universe is predominantly made of Dark Matter and Dark Energy. Both lie beyond currently known physics, but Dark Matter may soon become visible to experiment or astronomical observation. In this talk I will describe the current and planned experiments searching for dark matter and energy and the status of these searches.
This year's Spreadbury Lecture will be given by Prof. Simon White who is the director of the Max-Planck Institute for Astrophysics, Garching, Germany.
The lecture will take place in the Harrie Massey Lecture Theatre at 4:30pm on Wednesday March 6 2013. The lecture theater is at the entrance to the Physics and Astronomy Department that can be accessed via Gordon Place or through the Union Building on Gordon Street. There are several tube and rail stations within 800m of the lecture theatre which are shown on this map.
All students are welcome and the lecture will be accessible to undergraduates studying either physics or astronomy. The event is co-sponsored by the Physics and Astronomy Event Horizon Society.
Following the lecture, refreshments will be served in E3/E7 (Department of Physics) from 5:45pm and anyone attending the lecture is most welcome.
