As part of the internationally recognized Dark Matter Day, come out to our evening event on Nov 4th being held by the McDonald Institute, the Queen’s Observatory, and Queen’s Physics Department. We’ll have a fascinating talk by Professor Aaron Vincent about using the sun as a giant dark matter detector, then we’ll host various activities and demonstrations, including tours of the Queen’s Observatory. Feel free to dress up, as we’ll also have candy, a costume contest, and free give-aways!
