Global Warming Facts and Our Future

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.
