>>MORDECAI-MARK MAC LOW: In the last century we’ve learned that the universe behaves differently than we expected and
is made of stuff that we never expected.>>NEIL DEGRASSE TYSON: So often, an exhibit or a show, particularly at a museum, celebrates what we know and you expect
that. “Here’s what we know.” But how about the stuff we don’t know. That excites me. So, for our fifth space show for the Hayden
Planetarium and the Rose Center for Earth and Space, this is a show that in a way celebrates the unknown.>>MAC LOW: Since the last Space Show opened in 2009 perhaps the biggest themes in cosmology have been pushing to ultimately measure the properties of dark energy and zeroing in on just what the heck dark matter is.
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 this
show— taking data from the Hubble telescope
and using it to identify 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 it.>>CARTER EMMART: We have filmed two Observatories: Mt. Wilson in California where the expanding universe
was discovered. We also filmed at the
former Bell Labs in New Jersey where the microwave antenna was able to detect this background radiation predicted by the
theory of the Big Bang. Going to an instrument like that is is really- it’s exciting to bring it to our public.>>TYSON: We’re pulling out all the stops, creating
a visual and intellectual spectacle. Once you understand something that was
once a mystery you have a new place to stand, a new place
to look, a new vista upon which to drink in all that you don’t yet know about the universe. And so, really, science is about revealing places to stand that you didn’t even previously know existed. Therein are the deepest discoveries we can make.>>EMMART: I think we’ve been reaching always for a
description of how we fit into this big picture. We’ve done that sitting around the
campfire telling stories. We’ve done that by building space programs.
We do that by building fantastic instruments on top of mountains
where they can see and putting instruments in orbit. And that grandness of figuring out these vast time scales and
spatial scales is what makes us uniquely human. We have always been reaching for that
understanding. And that’s what coming to the
planetarium should be about. [MUSIC PLAYS]

    Awesome! I must go see this show. I saw Journey to the Stars about a year ago at the Hayden Planetarium

  2. American Museum of Natural History says:

    What excites Neil deGrasse Tyson about the universe?

    Watch this spine-tingling preview of our new Space Show Dark Universe to find out.

  3. ceebee27sts says:

    Are shows like this only seen at the Hayden Planetarium, or could I see this in my city at my local planetarium?

  4. Nicholas Bernard says:

    I'm coming to NY as soon as I have the time and money to get there

  5. dragoljub mirkovic says:

    svidja mi se

  6. ferybg12 says:

    without money how can someone go to that planitarium.

  7. Mordecai-Mark Mac Low says:

    We do license our shows to planetaria around the world.

  8. Matt Origoni says:

    what is the running time of the film?

    What is the music? it is brilliantย 

  11. Joe Guerra says:

    Went to see this show this weekend. Simply epic.

  12. C.J. McELEAVY says:

    Hope I get the opportunity to see this show at my local Planetatarium, Armagh, N.I. Looks impressively engaging,and informative.

  14. fauxhemia says:

    what is the run time for "Dark Universe"?

  15. omfgstfuandgtfo says:

    Where can i watch this? Im in Sweden…..they should really release these videos for pay online or something. ๐Ÿ™

  16. Vladimir Nikolic says:

    Can you buy a copy of this show anywhere? I live in Australia and can't seem to find it anywhere… ๐Ÿ™

  17. lee poznanski says:

    I saw this today! xD Awesome day at the Planetarium and the Museum Of Natural History ๐Ÿ™‚

  18. Andromeva says:

    Just saw this show today, and it was amazing!
    It was a while for me to be actually intrigued so much, you even got thinking in queue as you're waiting to enter!

    A small question though, in the hall before entering there's a video being played about the little girl and all that. What's the song title of that one by any chance? I read it was from Neil Davidge, but can't find the track anywhere.

  19. Meek Santos says:

    Saw the Dark universe yesterday @ AMNH. It was beautiful, however everything cried out creationism. There is a GOD. AMEN !

  20. bonto says:

    I wish there was a computer program that scientists could implement over time all the astronomical data of the observable universe, or at least all the objects in our solar system for starters, represented in high quality graphics in a game or simulation format.

    It could visually show people all the stars, planets, asteroids, etc that we've discovered in their relative places, with their calculated orbits and trajectories. It would let you see and play around with the data using measuring tools to see the distance from each planetary body so everyone can see just how far everything is in relation to each other.

    Actually seeing what the universe looks like in a simulation would be an amazing experience. Graphics are a powerful tool for the imagination and we have the technology to make something amazing like this.

  21. xiu lan lin says:

    i watched this show the dark universe today as a school trip

  22. 1wibble2 says:

    I'm off to New York on holiday next week and was planning on visiting the Natural History Museum. Is this extra thing worth spending money on as well?ย  Looks cool from the video.

  23. Damian Lopez says:

    Very good video.Thank you for sharing.

  24. Kraston Scott says:

    Excellent video. Thanks for sharing.

  25. Tennison Chan says:

    Let's celebrate the unknown!

  26. Brian Lee says:

    when does dark universe close to the public?

  27. Jessica Piszczek says:

    I saw this show in the air and space museum in D.C, it was amazing!

  28. CJ Balducci says:

    I cant wait to take my grandsons!!!!!

  29. Tickkz says:

    i was there today on a trip, it was rlly cool

  30. roberto p says:

    I saw this show in NY last year in June. Where can I get a copy to show this to my family? We reside in B.C.

  31. Michael Perry says:

    Don't ask how many times I saw Dark universe

  32. SkarXBL says:

    Great experience for a tourist like me! Love it A LOT!!!

  33. Jason Gruber says:

    I just want to say thank you to Mr Tyson for being the ONLY Scientist to call it Dark Matter by its true label Dark Gravity. It is a shame science has labels unknown gravity as sometime they ASSUME to be causing it without evidence. My hypothesis that Dark Matter is not a WIMP, but maybe is a deformation of space-time by which the curvature of space-time ALONE is the cause of the gravitational effect. Gravity is the consequence of the curvature of space-time. It may be possible that the structure of space-time itself could be warped without the presence of mass. Space-time has been shown to react like a fabric by warping, twisting, and propagating independent of mass. These properties have been proven with observations of gravitational lensing, frame dragging, and now gravitational waves. Fabrics can be stretched, pressured, and/or heated to the point of deformation. Such extreme conditions were all present during inflation, so it is plausible that space-timeโ€™s elastic nature could have hit its yield point and permanently deformed. Therefore, if gravity is the consequence of the warping of space-time, and fabrics can be permanently deformed, then a deformation could create a gravitational effect independent of mass. DM could be a microscopic black holes with no mass at the center, so they wouldn't lose their strength via Hawking Radiation.

    Prediction: Spacetime's elastic property hits a yield point, so only that part of geodesic's "stretch marks" would remain after inflation stopped. These steep gravitational wells would not follow the inverse square law.
    They would be steep tiny gravity wells.

    I saw this show at the Museum like 3 times

  35. Kate James says:

    i've been to this!!!

  36. Nelson Concepcion says:

    Is there a way I could see it without going to the planetarium?
