There are phenomena in our Universe that are almost beyond our realm of understanding – what lies in the dark space between the stars? How can we measure things that are invisible? What prevents the galaxies from expanding into oblivion? One explanation is the existence of dark matter, otherwise undetectable because it is composed of particles that do not absorb, reflect or emit light. We can only assume that it is there because of its impact on ordinary matter, so…

Public Lecture: with Professor Eric Mazur

August 29 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

How would you reimagine education so every child has a better future? In a world that’s changing rapidly we often ask ourselves how we should best prepare the next generation. Schooling and education practices resemble a mixture of long standing conventions, sometimes new ideas, and often familiar approaches. Is the current model and approach fit for purpose? What is that purpose? And if not, what should we do better? How would you reimagine education so every child has a better…

November 28 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

The quest for new physics Professor Raymond Volkas, School of Physics, The University of Melbourne The standard model of particle physics is an extremely successful theory, but we know that it is an incomplete description of nature. I will review the evidence for “new physics”: interactions and particles that extend the standard model. The evidence ranges from the experimental detection of neutrino masses through the existence of dark matter to puzzles such as the lack of antimatter in the universe…
