Hayden Planetarium Programs
Astronomy Live: History of the Universe
March 28, 2017
Emily Rice and Brian Levine break the laws of physics and travel back in time to the Big Bang to understand how it shaped our universe. Delve into quasars and galaxy clusters and investigate strange phenomena like dark energy, dark matter, and the cosmic microwave background.
At this distance in time and space, can we prove that the universe was created with a single explosion? See how scientists have detected a faint remnant glow that supports the Big Bang theory.
Support for Hayden Planetarium Programs is provided by the Horace W. Goldsmith Endowment Fund.
