Dive with us into the mysteries of outer space and discover what is, what was and what may one day be… Let’s embark on a journey following the trail of the elusive dark matter, from the birth of galaxies towards the dream of seeing forest on the moon!
In observational pursuit of dark matter and dark energy
Ruth Durrer (Professor of Theoretical Physics, Geneva University)
I shall talk about cosmological experiments which indicate the presence of dark matter and dark energy. Why are most cosmologists convinced that ordinary matter makes up only about 4% of the total energy density in the Universe and the rest is dark matter (28%) and dark enegy (68%) ? I shall also discuss possible pitfalls and how we can go beyond them.
Why we should plant Forests on the Moon
Louise Fleischer (President of The Spring Institute for Forest on the Moon)
This presentation will cover the concept of space ecology: what it is and why it might be the best solution for long-term space settlements.
