Joins us as presenters Michael Dowding, a professor of physics, and grad students Daniel Moore and James Haiston Jr., all from the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology, discuss dark matter: what it is and how it fits into pop culture. They did this discussion at this year's Comic Con and they're doing it again for Dark Matter Day–in costume. A social begins at 5 p.m.; the program begins at 6 p.m.
