We believe dark matter makes up 85% of the matter in the universe. However, its nature is one of the biggest puzzles in physics.

Around the world in October we celebrate this search during the “Dark Matter Day”.


After last year’s success in our DM day at MPA, this year we decided to extend the event to an all day mini-workshop with very special guests.


Come and join us on Oct. 30th from 09:30 to 16:00 for a mini-workshop on many topics of dark matter.
