Featured Film: Dark Matter
Nearly 95% of the universe is made of invisible stuff that scientists
cannot identify. The conventional wisdom that everything is made
of protons, neutrons, and electrons is probably wrong. It's true that everything we can see is made of these things. But
careful observations of the universe indicate that we can only
see a tiny fraction of what's actually there. Scientists call this
incredibly massive and invisible stuff dark matter and dark energy.
Discover how scientists are gathering clues to unlock such secrets
of the universe. An orientation film illustrates this quest
and then highlights how the rules that govern the structure and
behavior of stars and galaxies are the same rules that govern the
structure and behavior of atoms and plants. By studying phenomena
at every scale scientists are learning more about what hidden clues
the universe's governing principles might reveal.
