PERIMETER INSTITUTE RECORDED SEMINAR ARCHIVE

Resolving the Mystery of Dark Matter - EinsteinPlus Keynote Session
Speaker(s): James Taylor
Abstract: For more than 70 years, astronomers have had the uneasy suspicion that there was more to the universe than met the eye - much, much more. In the past five years, this suspicion has become a certainty. We now know for sure that normal matter and normal radiation account for only 4% of the density of the universe. One of the two biggest components, dark matter, may be finally be identified by new experiments coming on line next year. I'll summarise the long quest to identify dark matter and our prospects for finally achieving this goal in the next two years.
