The new Hayden Planetarium Space show - in the American Museum of Natural History - "Dark Universe" starts 100 million light years away from Earth.
In stunningly detailed scenes based on authentic scientific data—including a NASA probe’s breathtaking plunge into Jupiter’s atmosphere and novel visualizations of unobservable dark matter — Dark Universe explores this new age of cosmic discovery and reveals the mysteries that have been brought to light so far.
"Many people don't know that the museum is also a major research institute. Included in our Astrophysics research program is work directly related to the topic of show - taking data from the Hubble telescope and using it to identify a distant supernovae and from that to help measure the properties of dark energy. This space show is not just about what the Universe is, but how we measure." - Mordecai-Mark Mac Low, curator in the Department of Astrophysics.
Address: Central Park West at 79th Street
