BHSU Community Lecture and Lunch Series to focus on dark matter

Dr. Kara Keeter, an Astroparticle Physicist at Black Hills State University, will describe the importance of the research that she and her research partners are pursuing at deep underground science laboratory (DUSEL) Feb. 18 at 11:30 a.m. in the Jacket Legacy Room. This is the first presentation in the spring Lecture and Lunch Series program at BHSU.

Keeter’s presentation, “The Dark Side of the Universe,” will discuss the importance of DUSEL and its role in bringing the international science community to our doorstep. The facility will provide opportunities for university faculty and students to conduct world-class research, for K-20 teachers to expose their students to real research questions and to have them work with real data, and for the community and visitors to learn about science through the proposed science education center. The driving forces behind developing this lab at the surface and deep underground is the search for a better understanding of neutrinos and the nature of dark matter.

There is a $10 fee for the Lecture and Lunch events, which covers the cost of lunch. Reservations are requested, but not required. For more information and to make a reservation, please call Shelby Cihak at (605) 642-6420.
