What's the talk about?
The two biggest puzzles in physics today are dark matter and dark energy. Together they make up 96% of the Universe yet we know very little about either. Dave will set out what we do know about them, some of the theories that have been put forward to explain them, and the research that is underway to find out more. Finally, Dave will outline the ongoing work by Sheffield researchers.
Dave Sahman spent his career as a Finance Director in the public sector, but held a lifelong interest in astronomy. Following his retirement a few year ago, he began a PhD with the University of Sheffield, his research focuses on binary stars.
