Overview

Most of our universe is missing! When we look into the night sky we realise there is much more out there than meets the eye. Our universe is filled with mysterious dark matter, whose gravity provides the cosmic glue that holds it all together, and dark energy, which is slowly tearing the universe apart. It seems that darkness rules. But what is this dark stuff? How do we know it is there? What does it do? Durham University lecturer Dr Peter Edwards will provide some answers. After the talk we will do some stargazing (weather permitting). Wrap up warm and bring a red light torch (if you have one). Access to the Observatory is via an extremely steep access road and there is only very limited space for parking – details here www.northpennobservatory.org.uk/Contact. This event is part of the North Pennines Stargazing Festival running from 20 October to 4 November 2018 - www.NorthPenninesStarFest.org.uk
