A brief overview of what we know about dark matter, some history of when the idea arose, and current experiments designed to detect or otherwise figure out what dark matter is. "I gave a lecture this morning in the virtual world of Second Life for the Meta Institute for Computational Astrophysics on Dark Matter. I used images as well as constructing 3D interactive objects. At the beginning of the presentation I am referring to 3 boxlike objects one black representing dust in visible light, one red representing dust glowing in the infrared. And one transparent representing Dark Matter, which is't actually dark, it is transparent. I'll upload an image of the boxes.") San Francisco, CA: The Exploratorium.
