THE PURPOSE: This course describes Nature's darkest secret: Dark Matter and Dark Energy. Dark Energy is the most challenging unsolved problem of today's Physics. About 70% percent of the whole stuff that makes the Universe is in the form of Dark Energy, in which pressure is negative and gravity repulsive. 90% of the remaining part is the Dark Matter of yet unknown composition and nature.

EXAM: small students' research projects
