From cosmology observations, we can infer that known forms of matter represent less than 5% of the total content of the universe. In other words, despite dramatic progress in our understanding of particle physics over the last decades, we still don’t know what (most of) the universe is made of. In this seminar, we will talk about the main components of the universe: dark matter and dark energy. We will review the evidence for their existence and prospects for detecting their nature in the coming years.
