Dark matter and the hidden cosmos
Date: 25 November 2017, 16:00 onwards
Location: Helsinki Observatory (Kopernikuksentie, Helsinki)
Presenter: Tommi Tenkanen, Queen Mary University of London
The nature of Dark Matter is one of the greatest open problems in cosmology and therefore under active study. Dark Matter is known to interact with ordinary, visible matter via gravity and its abundance is known very accurately, but what it actually is remains a mystery. In this public talk I will present the evidence and searches for Dark Matter, as well as an overview of theoretical models for what it could be. The talk is non-technical and targeted for everybody.
