Dr. James Schombert "Dark Matter and Cosmology"

Over 95% of the Universe is composed of a substance that is *not* made of baryons (i.e., normal matter), and does not emit any radiation to detect it. I will review 1) how we know this dark matter exists, 2) what we know that it *isn't* and 3) why it is important to cosmology, the formation and evolution of the Universe.
