Exploring the Dark Side of the Universe: Black Holes, Dark Matter, and Dark Energy - Professor Karl Gebhardt , University of Texas at Austin, will discuss three key findings in Astronomy. A new force of nature, dark energy, is causing the expansion of the universe to speed up. The nature of dark matter that dominates mass around galaxies is unknown. Black holes are thought to exist in all galaxies, yet we do not understand how they form and interact with galaxies. Review the current discoveries and understanding of these dark components of the universe with Professor Gebhardt. This lecture/talk is intended for a general audience, including all astronomy enthusiasts of all backgrounds and ages.
