Dark Universe

What is dark matter? Learn how scientists search for answers to space related questions. Get to know the Milky Way shown through the lens of the newest astronomical data.

Only a hundred years ago many scientists were convinced that our galaxy, the Milky Way, is the whole Universe. Today we know they were wrong as the Milky Way is only one of billions of star collections spread across the whole universe. During the “Dark Universe” show you will learn about the dark matter and dark energy both of which we cannot see and yet they constitute 95% of space. We will look at the Milky Way through the perspective of the latest astronomical data and visit the Mount Wilson Observatory, where Edwin Hubble discovered the process of the expansion of the universe, which in turn laid foundations for the Big Bang theory. This discovery and ever improving technologies give all astronomers a chance to better understand the observed phenomena. Maybe soon we will find out how the Universe was created and how it has changed for 13.8 billion years?
