WHERE IS THE REST OF THE UNIVERSE?
Astronomers believe the universe contains at least ten times as much mass as
can be seen and accounted for. How they are able to detect this missing
mass and to discover more about it are the subjects of this episode.
Astronomers Vera Rubin and Tony Tyson describe their search for dark matter,
material invisible to us but whose gravity affects the motion of stars and
can alter the light reaching us from distant galaxies. In addition, meet
John Dobson, a self-proclaimed "sidewalk astronomer."
"Not only is LSSU close and convenient to my home in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, but the atmosphere is very welcoming. All of the staff and students seem to be really open, and the teacher-to-student ratio is very personal, unlike larger universities." [ more ]
