Abstract
The new exhibition "Viatge cap a l'Univers Fosc" will be displayed at the Physics Faculty from 19 october to 6 november.

Three members of the ICCUB-FQA team that developed the exhibition present this work speaking about dark universe.

Talks:

  • Los secretos del cosmos (Ricardo Ferreira (ICCUB))
  • Black holes, the dark side of gravity, (Raimon Luna (ICCUB))
  • Gravitational waves: the universe’s symphony, (Helvi Witek (ICCUB))

Notes
The night sky is full of amazing images, which catch our eyes and blow our minds. However, there is much more out there: things that are waiting to be discovered.
The exhibition Unravelling the dark universe proposes a journey towards the fascinating frontiers of cosmology and gravity, ranging from dark matter and dark energy, to black holes and gravitational waves.
