A Public Lecture at the Stamford Observatory

Free for members of the Museum, $3 for non-members.

The universe is filled with galaxies, which look wondrous through telescopes. However, lurking unseen is Dark Matter, binding together clusters of galaxies and letting them spin faster than expected. What is Dark Matter, and how do we "see" something that doesn't emit any light? Come on down and find out!

After the lecture, join us up on the rooftop for a view of the heavens through a huge telescope!

This presentation is suitable for the general public, and kids over 12.
