Phantom of the Universe: The Hunt for Dark Matter

Phantom of the Universe: The Hunt for Dark Matter

Event Overview


Presenting a new full-dome planetarium show Phantom of the Universe: The Hunt for Dark Matter, with narration by Academy Award winner Tilda Swinton
and sound by an Academy Award winning team at Skywalker Sound.

The show has fantastic visuals of the LHC and the Homestake Mine. It covers everything from the Big Bang to galaxies to a deep underground experiment in the Homestake Mine in South Dakota to the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva.

It includes a brief discussion of the Higgs boson discovery, and the planetarium’s narration illustrates the link to how Canada’s own particle accelerator centre at TRIUMF ties into this research.

The Planetarium Star Theatre has daily showtimes throughout the day and year.


As Canada's particle accelerator centre we are long standing ATLAS detector contributors, and an enthusiastic community of dark matter researchers.
