Like science? Join us in celebrating Dark Matter Day with a Thunderclap on October 31!
Less than five percent of the total mass and energy in the universe is the stuff we know about: stars, planets, people, galaxies, gases, etc. The rest of the matter in the universe is dark matter, but we can't see it!
There is five times as much dark matter as normal matter in our cosmos. Dark matter could be undiscovered particles swirling around our cosmos or a huge glitch in our understanding of gravity and the fundamental laws of physics—we don’t know. A host of innovative experiments are hunting for the source of dark matter using mile-deep detectors, powerful particle beams, and even space-based telescopes.
Dark Matter Day is a globally recognized celebration of this cosmic riddle and the quest to solve it. Be a part of it! Join us in celebrating Dark Matter Day on Tuesday, Oct. 31, 2017. Simply support the Thunderclap and your account will share the message about Dark Matter Day on October 31 on social media, along with all the others who are celebrating. Together, we'll recognize the research that explores one of nature's biggest mysteries.
And be sure to check darkmatterday.com for events throughout October featuring science experts, activities, films, and more!
We are a communication resource from the world's particle physics laboratories. On and around October 31, 2017, the world will celebrate the historic hunt for the unseen—something that scientists refer to as dark matter. Local events planned by institutions and individuals around the planet will explain what we know about dark matter, and about the many present and planned experiments that seek to solve its mysteries.
