❄️⚫ Dr. Julian Onions FRAS: Cold dark matter – is it cold, is it dark and is it matter?
We hear a lot about dark matter in astronomy. Some people consider it a fudge. In this talk we’ll go through the evidence for dark matter and the history of it, and answer the questions in the title.
Julian Onions is a Dr in astrophysics, fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society and programmer. He is an academic staff at the University of Nottingham/School of Physics and Astronomy and is interested in communicating astronomy with the public, galaxy formation and cosmology/dark matter.
🚀🍯 Additionally, our UKSEDS rocketry competition team “The Honey Badgers” will present their model rocket: The Big OOF!
