Shedding Light on Dark Matter (part 4)

Shedding Light on Dark Matter (part 4)

In the fall I'm giving a lecture series on topics ranging from the history of the universe to time travel. Dark Matter is one of those topics.

In this final part of the series, we go over a very brief history of Dark Matter and some of its competitor theories, such as Modified Newtonian Dynamics (MOND) and Massive Compact Halo Objects (MACHOs).

Hey, would you be able to put up the link for the computer simulation you were talking about in this episode? I hadn't heard about it, and I'm really interested in learning more.
Great podcast, by the way. Thank you so much, and I hope you keep it up!
