Join UT Science at SXSW!

CNS scientists will be featured in two expert panels on March 13:

 Charting the Uncharted Universe, March 13, 2020, 12:30–1:30 p.m., Location: Park View AB, with Karl Gebhardt, Katherine Freese and Moriba Jah

Beyond our planet, big problems to tackle remain: from debris polluting our home galaxy to the fact that 95% of the Universe consists of two forces scientists do not understand: dark matter and dark energy. To illuminate the unknowns requires quantifying the space junk that’s out there and collecting the missing pieces to reveal explanations for all non-matter in the Universe. Join experts Karl Gebhardt, Katie Freese and Moriba Jah in a discussion about mapping the distant galaxies, where do MACHOs and WIMPs fit in and how this impacts our near-earth space.
