Everything we know about the universe, the stars, planets, and galaxies constitute less than 5 percent of the known universe. The majority of the cosmos still remains a mystery to scientists across the world. However, astronomers are convinced that there are two major players: dark matter which is pulling the universe together, and dark energy which pushes the universe apart. They’re engaged in a cosmic tug of war that will determine nothing less than the fate of our universe.
Come to the July New Mexico PBS Science Café and watch a segment of NOVA Wonders: What’s the Universe Made Of? Join a panel discussion with experts that will discuss recent discoveries and how they hope to push our understanding of the universe even further.
