Bernard Sadoulet: "Shedding Light on the Dark Side of the Universe"

When: Sat., Dec. 17, 11 a.m.-12 p.m. 2011

What is dark matter and why does it, well, matter? If anyone knows, it's elementary particle physicist Bernard Sadoulet, currently the director of the UC system-wide Institute for Nuclear and Particle Astrophysics and Cosmology. In his lecture "Shedding Light on the Dark Side of the Universe," Sadoulet discusses the dark energy comprising 95 percent of our universe, specifically recent efforts to detect Weakly Interactive Massive Particles -- that's right, WIMPs! Go dark on Saturday, Dec. 17, in 100 Genetics & PlantBiologyBuilding, UC Berkeley campus. 11 a.m.-noon, free. SCroft@astro.berkeley.edu or Events.Berkeley.edu
