PHANTOM OF THE UNIVERSE
Film Type: Space Education
Suitable for school years 7+
Film length: 25 mins
Dark matter, from the Big Bang to its anticipated discovery at the Large Hadron Collider.
Narrated by Tilda Swinton, this amazing story reveals the first hints of its existence. It describes the astral choreography witnessed by Vera Rubin in the Andromeda galaxy and then plummets deep underground to see the most sensitive dark matter detector on Earth, housed in a former gold mine.
From there, it journeys across space and time to the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, speeding alongside particles before they collide in visually stunning explosions of light and sound.
Our school Planetarium show also includes a guided ‘What’s in the sky tonight’ presentation and a Solar System walk through covering relevant aspects of the NSW curriculum.
