SFM think + drink (science): What You Need to Know About Dark Matter & Dark Energy with Jeff Rodgers

On the second Wednesday of most months, we transform the Bishop Planetarium into a forum for discussions at think + drink (science), a place where you can grab a beer or a glass of wine (or a soft drink) and learn about cutting-edge science in a relaxed, informal setting. Typically, our “expert du jour” gives a short presentation on the topic of the month, and then opens the floor for questions and discussion.

This month: Over the past few years, we’ve come to realize that 95% of the universe consists of matter and energy that don’t act like the “normal” matter that makes up stars and galaxies and planets and moons. What is this stuff? And what can it tell us about the formation and fate of our universe?
