Join Chris Toth from STFC’s Boulby Underground Laboratory for a family-friendly guide to the bizarre mystery that is dark matter. Ongoing work to find this elusive stuff happens over 1km deep underground in Yorkshire! Find out more at a light-hearted talk with time for questions followed by exciting hands-on activities for all ages at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory.

This will be a family show (30 minutes + questions) followed by activities until 3pm.

Please note that the talk will be streamed online, but the activities will be in-person only.
