October 31st is International Dark Matter Day! The Dark Matter and Neutrinos group at Penn State hosted an information booth at the HUB (the main student center in the university), to talk to people about Dark Matter, Cosmology, and Physics in general! We had quite a number of people stopping by, and some lively discussions! In the spirit of Halloween, we also distributed some chocolate – dark, of course 😉
Below are some pictures of the event, with Profs. Carmen Carmona and Luiz de Viveiros; Dan Kodroff, Gavin Cox, and Andrew Ziegler, graduate students with our group; Rachel Ratvasky and Jake Miller, undergraduate students with our group; and Michael Ryan, graduate student researching Black Holes made of Dark Matter (!) with Prof. Sarah Shandera.
