You are all invited to participate in the BiCoQ seminar “Dark Matter Clues from the Faintest Galaxies

Speaker: Professor Julio Navarro (University of Victoria, Canada)

Abstract: I will present results on two recent discoveries which represent the faintest galaxies known to date. One is a dwarf satellite of the Milky Way with only ~16 solar masses of stars, and another one a gas-filled system apparently devoid of stars. I will discuss the implications of the faintest galaxies known for the nature of dark matter and for the process of dwarf galaxy formation in the Lambda Cold Dark Matter paradigm.
