Marsden Grant for Ultralight Dark Matter

Marsden Grant for Ultralight Dark Matter

New Zealand’s annaul Marsden fund results were released this week, and one of the winning applications was our project to look at the dynamics of ultralight dark matter. The problem is this: children can learn that our sun is one of hundreds of billions of stars...
