Phantom of the Universe showcases an exciting exploration of the most mysterious substance in the universe: dark matter. See our hidden reality as never before, as you learn about this poorly understood substance that pervades the entire universe.

The show reveals the first hints of its existence through the eyes of Fritz Zwicky, describes the beauty of the Andromeda galaxy as witnessed by Vera Rubin and then plummets deep underground to 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, where particles accelerate and collide in visually stunning explosions of light and sound. See for yourself how scientists around the world are collaborating to find out what dark matter really is, and how much we don’t know about the universe.

Your ticket to Phantom of the Universe includes both this full dome film and a live presentation, detailing everything you can see in the night sky for the upcoming month.

Please note the planetarium is NOT suitable for those with sensitivities to flashing lights and/or dizzying motion. If you require accessible facilities, please let us know in advance: Latecomers will not be admitted.

A Science Dome Presentation.
