From the journey of protons racing through the world’s largest particle collider to close-up views of the Big Bang, this new full-dome show is designed to immerse audiences in the search for dark matter. The first hints of its existence are revealed through the eyes of the scientist who coined the term “dark matter.” Then we plummet deep underground to see the most sensitive dark matter detector on Earth, housed in a former gold mine. From there, we journey across space and time, speeding alongside particles as they collide in spectacular explosions of light, learning how scientists around the world are collaborating to track down the true nature of dark matter. This film is narrated by Oscar-winning actress Tilda Swinton.
