The history of the universe tells us a lot about the properties of the stuff that it contains. Of particular interest are the dark matter and dark energy, which together comprise 96% of the total energy. I will describe the experimental and theoretical work in Physics and Astronomy, and at NCSA that hope to illuminate these dark" topics."
