We are only 15% of the matter of the universe and the rest is there, we see its gravity, but we have no idea what it is ...
The ghosts of the universe: the search for dark matter.

Only 15% of the matter in the universe is made up of atoms. The rest is a mysterious substance whose nature is unknown. We call it dark matter.

On October 31 at 7:00 p.m and 8:00 p.m, on the occasion of the international "Dark Matter Day", a documentary will be screened in a planetary format and an IFIC expert will offer an introductory lecture in the Hemisfèric. We will explain what we know about dark matter and why we are so sure it exists; we will travel from the first instants of the universe to the outer regions of the galaxies, and we will see the mark that it has left.

A search that began in the 20th century, and has become one of the most exciting of the 21st century.
