Science Café Cleveland: “Dark Matter or Modified Gravity? What the Acceleration Scale in Galaxies Suggests”

Is dark matter real, or did physicists get gravity wrong, as it operates at radically different scales than our own?

At the next Science Café Cleveland, Stacy McGaugh, chair of the Department of Astronomy, will explain the controversy and talk about how his work gives new life to dark matter’s rival theory.

His talk, titled “Dark Matter or Modified Gravity? What the Acceleration Scale in Galaxies Suggests,” will be held Monday, March 13, from 7 to 8 p.m. at the Music Box Supper Club (1148 Main Ave., Cleveland).

Doors open at 5:30 p.m. Limited menu options will be available for purchase.

Science Café Cleveland is sponsored by the CWRU chapter of Sigma Xi, WCPN ideastream and the Music Box Supper Club.
