Speakers: Dr Sean Paling

For more than a decade UK astrophysicists have been operating experiments to search for Dark Matter - the 'missing mass in the Universe' - 1100m below ground in a purpose-built 'low-background' facility at Boulby potash mine in the North East of England.
The race to find Dark Matter continues - in the meantime the range of science areas looking for the special properties of facilities like Boulby is growing with projects ranging from the study of clouds and climate to life in extreme environments.
This talk will give an overview of the Boulby Deep Underground Science Facility, the science currently supported and plans for science at Boulby in the future.
Open to all - no prior expertise in astrophysics or deep underground science is required...
