The Mystery of Dark Matter: Kibbe Lecturer Blas Cabrera

Cabrera, a leader of the Cryogenic Dark Matter
Search (CDMS) collaboration, will take us on a
tour through the fascinating world of cosmology
and particle physics leading to the mystery
of dark matter. 

We know dark matter exists
from compelling astrophysical observations.
CDMS searches directly for cosmic dark matter
particles passing through the laboratory. 

Other experiments look for gamma rays from dark
matter particle-antiparticle annihilations, while
the Large Hadron Collider at the European
Organization for Nuclear Research, hopes to
produce dark matter in high energy collisions.

Our guide will show us the fascinating range
of experiments that could uncover the truth of
dark matter.
