Saturday Morning Physics | Why Physicists in Search of Dark Matter are Building the Most Sensitive Radios Ever Made
Ben Safdi, Professor (U-M Physics)
Most of the "stuff" in our own Galaxy and the Universe as a whole is known to be in a form of a mysterious substance called dark matter. One idea for what this stuff is, that has been quickly gaining traction in recent years, is a hypothetical particle called the axion. Professor Safdi will explain why this model appears promising, and he will describe how researchers are trying to confirm this theory using ultra-sensitive radios.
