This lecture is part of the Museum’s 75th Anniversary lecture series featuring top authorities in disciplines inducing space exploration, science and technology and energy. Ninety-five percent of the universe is missing! Astronomical observations suggest that most of the mass of the universe is in a mysterious form called “dark matter” and most of the energy in the universe is in an even more mysterious form called “dark energy.” Unlocking the secrets of dark matter and dark energy will illuminate the nature of space and time, and connect the quantum world with the cosmos.
This “out-of-this-world” lecture will be given by Professor Rocky Kolb of the University of Chicago’s Department of Astronomy and Astrophysics.
Lectures will be held in the Auditorium, located on the Main Floor adjacent to the Group Entrance. The lecture series is recommended for ages 12 and over. To register for this event please call (773) 684-1414.
