Dark Universe will celebrate the scientific breakthroughs that have paved the way for our increased understanding of the universe, revealing that it is dominated by two mysterious phenomena: dark matter and dark energy. To bring this story to the Hayden Planetarium dome, the Space Show uses stunning visualizations based on authentic data from NASA and European Space Agency missions, ground-based telescopes, supercomputer simulations, and research conducted at institutions around the globe, including the Museum. In Dark Universe, viewers will see the night sky at the historic Mount Wilson Observatory, soar across the Milky Way Galaxy, and parachute through Jupiter’s atmosphere.

Dark Universe was created by the American Museum of Natural History, the Frederick Phineas and Sandra Priest Rose Center for Earth and Space, and the Hayden Planetarium.
