43) Dark Matter's Halo


Had a fun time talking with Astroparticle Physicist and 2020 Polanyi Prize in Physics winner; Dr. Miriam Diamond. Dr. Diamond's primary research is focused on searching for low-mass dark matter. Her experiments take place two kilometers underground at one of the world's premiere astroparticle physics facilities: SNOLAB. We covered the physics behind dark matter, along with its role in everything from string theory to parallel universes, to even the destruction of our own universe.
