Dark: Understanding Dark Matter
The search for Dark Matter is the most pressing astrophysical problem of our time – the solution to which will help us understand why the Universe is as it is, where it came from, and how it has evolved over billions of years – the unimaginable depths of deep time, of which a human life is but a flickering instant. In this instant, we can grasp its immensity and, through science, we can attempt to understand it.
Join us in the Hurst Planetarium to explore this invisible glue that holds the universe together. Using immersive simulations, calculated with the world’s fastest supercomputers along with a touch of humanity, we’ll bring you to the forefront of contemporary astronomy for this 80% missing piece of the Universe.
It sounds like science fiction, but it’s not. It is the real stuff… real data seen for the first time.
