Surprisingly, 80% of our universe's mass is made up by a mysterious, non-illuminating substance called dark matter. Its discovery has catapulted physicists into a new era while its nature remains one of the greatest mysteries in modern astrophysics. Using hydrodynamic simulations of Milky Way-type galaxies, I explore the distribution of dark matter on the galactic scale. By observing the speeds of dark matter in the solar circle I generate predictions for terrestrial, direct detection, dark matter experiments, helping to constrain parameter space for projects like SABRE (Sodium Iodide with Active Background Rejection).
