Dark Matter in the Pub

  • - (AEST)
  • Smith's Alternative
    76 Alinga Street, Canberra ACT 2601, Australia

One of the greatest mysteries of science is dark matter - an invisible substance that seems to be all around galaxies, affecting how they rotate. Maybe it's right here around us as well, but we can't see it.

The ARC Dark Matter Particle Physics Centre of Excellence is setting out to detect it, in a re-purposed mine shaft in Stawell Victoria.

Come and meet the researchers and hear them talk about this remarkable quest, in the relaxed atmosphere of Smiths Alternative.

Grab a beverage and a snack for eight short talks from astronomers, particle physicists, nuclear physicists and engineers collaborating on this epic mystery.
