WHAT: Penn Science Café: Embracing the Dark Side: In Search of the Missing Pieces of the Cosmic Puzzle


For most of the last century, physicists pushed our understanding of the microscopic world down to ever-smaller sizes, splitting the atom to reveal its inner workings and making astonishing new discoveries, including, most recently, the Higgs particle. At the same time, other scientists – astronomers – have continued to look to the skies for “the big picture” of the universe, peering beyond our galaxy and looking back to the beginning of time. In this cafe, Mark Trodden will explore how modern cosmology weaves together these seemingly distinct strands of knowledge, turning our telescopes into microscopes, and allowing us to read the hitherto unknown dark side of the universe.


The talk is part of the Penn Science Cafe, a free public lecture series presented by Penn Arts & Sciences that sheds light on faculty research in the arts and sciences. The presentation will be followed by an audience Q&A. Café events are free and open to the public. Food and beverages will be available for purchase before, during, and after the talk.


 RSVPs are encouraged due to limited seating. For more information or directions, call or email Amber Grier at 215-573-3008 or
