The dark side of the universe | Katherine Freese | TEDxVienna
The ordinary atoms that make up the known universe, from our bodies and the air we breathe to the planets and stars, constitute only 5% of all matter and energy in the cosmos. The remaining 95% is made up of a recipe of 25% dark matter and 70% dark energy. In this talk Freese provides a fascinating overview of this Cosmic Cocktail.
Katherine Freese’s research in theoretical cosmoparticle physics works toward identifying the dark matter and dark energy that permeate the universe and building a successful model for the early universe right after the Big Bang.
