Dark matter day

A global hunt for the universe’s missing matter is underway, and this autumn everyone is invited to join in. On and around Halloween 2017 events around the world will celebrate the hunt for the universe’s unseen dark matter, mysterious particles that make up 25% of the Universe, approximately five times more than all the particles we know about!

Royal Holloway’s Dark Matter group is part of the current and next-generation world’s largest dark matter direct detection experiments, DEAP-3600 at SNOLAB, and LZ at SURF.

Join Professor Jocelyn Monroe on the Eve of Halloween to find out about the most favourable candidates for dark matter, WIMPs (otherwise known as Weakly-Interacting Massive Particles) and the wind of dark matter particles created by the motion of the Earth through the galaxy. Discuss the latest experiment results and join the global celebrations for this exciting area of Physics!
