There will be a FREE dialogue, “Exploring the Dark Universe: Discovery & Invention,” given by Professor Tony Tyson, University of California, Davis, at 5:30 PM Thursday, June 27th at the Aspen Center for Physics, 6th and Gillespie.
The evolution of our Universe is being driven by Dark Matter and Dark Energy, which are invisible to the eye and to most instrumentation. Physicists are excited because this “dark sector” of nature is beyond our current understanding, implying new physics. This dialogue will review historic research and describe the new technology and instrumentation that astronomers and particle physicists are using to design the next facility to probe Dark Energy and Dark Matter.
