If you have a question about this talk, please contact Dr Nigel Bennee.

Dr King is a well-known and highly regarded speaker on the phenomena of gravitational lensing, especially as a tool for ‘finding’ Dark Matter. During the past decade, a consistent picture of the universe where the dominant form of matter is cold and dark has emerged from various astronomical observations. In other words, most of the matter in the universe does not emit light or any other form of electromagnetic radiation that can be directly detected using telescopes. This talk will discuss the evidence for the existence of dark matter. In particular it will describe how gravitational lensing is used to detect and study the distribution of dark matter in massive objects in the universe, such as galaxies and galaxy clusters
