SUMMARY: Ninety-five percent of the universe is missing! Dr. Kolb will discuss astronomical observations that suggest most of the mass of the universe is in a mysterious form called dark matter, and most of the energy in the universe is in an even more mysterious form called dark energy.
The event is part of the 27th Texas Symposium on Relativistic Astrophysics, hosted by the University of Texas at Dallas.
