The Search for Dark Matter at Boulby Mine

Hopefully you’ve spotted that the ReadMe and Programme are now available for download. Unfortunately, as tends to be the case, an error has been found already.

The programme item on Monday at 11am in the Hawthorn room should in fact be “The Search for Dark Matter at Boulby Mine“.

Dr. Sean Paling of Sheffield University will talk about how UK astrophysicists are searching for the missing mass in the Universe at the bottom of Boulby mine. Dr. Paling will give an easy introduction to astronomy, the Universe and the search for Dark Matter followed by a virtual tour of the experiments currently underway over 1km underground at Boulby.
