The search for dark matter in the universe has established itself as one of the most exciting and central fields of astrophysics, particle physics and cosmology. Dark matter is a form of matter thought to account for approximately 85% of the matter in the universe and about a quarter of its total energy density. Its presence is implied in a variety of astrophysical observations, including gravitational effects that cannot be explained by accepted theories of gravity unless more matter is present than can be seen.

  Dark matter ADMX. The Axion Dark Matter Experiment (ADMX) brings together scientists from 10 institutions from the United States and UK to hunt for a hypothetical particle called an axion, which may solve the mystery of dark matter. The experiment is managed by Fermilab and housed at the University of Washington. Astroparticle physics, also called particle astrophysics, is a branch of particle physics that studies elementary particles of astronomical origin and their relation to astrophysics and is a relatively new field of research emerging at the intersection of particle physics, astronomy, astrophysics, detector physics, relativity, solid state physics, and cosmology.

Abstract: [A brief review intended for a general physics colloquium audience.] Astrophysicists now know that 80% of the matter in the universe is `dark matter', composed of neutral and weakly interacting elementary particles that are not part of the Standard Model of particle physics. I will summarize the evidence for dark matter.

Flip Tanedo spends a lot of time thinking about dark matter. He grew up in Los Angeles and fell in love with physics after reading The Physics of Star carried into degrees in mathematics and physics at Stanford, Cambridge, Durham, and a Ph.D at tion: Assistant Professor.

However, this information is not enough to identify the particle specie(s) that make up dark matter. As such, .
