Event Details


Mining for Dark Matter



Dark matter makes up most of the mass in the Universe, but what exactly is it? Discuss it over a sip of some sort with Matthew Francis as he takes us on a trip from the beginning of time to a modern lab a half-mile underground.



Matthew R. Francis, PhD         biography

Doors open @ 6:00 pm

Program @ 7:00 pm



The Camel    
  1621 W Broad St    Richmond, Virginia 23220    

Feel free to park in the Lowes parking lot across the street


Sipping a glass of water at these free, open-to-the-public gatherings is completely copacetic.


 But wait, there's more:




This gathering marks our First Anniversary!

So, they'll be a little extra cheer in the form of some congratulatory sugar and a small raffle to raise some funds.


As always, gifts are welcome -- cash gifts to keep it going another year!

We moved because we are now part of Science Matters and Community Idea Stations!


Science Pub RVA connects curious citizens and creative scientists over a sip of some sort at informal gatherings in non-academic settings. No background in science is needed.  A smidge of curiosity is all it takes to enjoy a fun and engaging time.  Pub is in our name, but sipping a glass of water at these events is completely copacetic.
