Project Details

Project Description

Unidentified dark matter outweighs luminious matter (stars, gas & galaxies) by several times and is detected by its gravitational effects in the Universe. The Six Degree Field galaxy survey is now complete and we are preparing a larger survey, which will put our team clearly in the lead in understanding the distribution of dark matter.
