TED Talk Discussion: Search for the Invisible Matter that Shapes the Universe, Tues. at 4:00 PM

TED Talk
The Search for the Invisible Matter
that Shapes the Universe

presented by
Gene Rork
Tuesday, March 21st at 4 PM on Zoom

Consider this an opportunity to get an update about the ongoing investigation of one of the major enigmas humans are trying to solve.  The universe that we know, with its luminous stars and orbiting planets, is largely made up of entities we can't actually see—like dark energy and dark matter—and therefore don't fully understand. Theoretical physicist Chanda Prescod-Weinstein takes us inside the search for this cosmos-shaping invisible matter and explains how, with the help of a new generation of telescopes, we could be closer than ever before to demystifying it. "The universe is more queer and fantastical than it looks to the naked eye," she says. Let’s welcome back physicist Gene Rork, along with physical chemists Barbara and Peter Offfenhartz, to help us understand and assess the content of this TED talk and to lead our discussion about it.
