A unique space journey through time and space, which conveys through images and sounds what science has revealed about the Universe. A journey for the greatness of the worlds in our solar system and the Sun itself, the colorful birthplaces and the cemeteries of the stars. A journey beyond the borders of our galaxy to the incredible vastness of millions of other galaxies. During this journey, we learn about the history of astronomy, the invention of the telescope, and the modern giant telescopes, which are the eyes of science to study the Universe thoroughly.

Universe. Infinite, vast, infinite, chaotic and at the same time so harmonious. The universe was and still is for humanity one of the biggest questions in the journey of seeking knowledge. "Radiographing the Universe" by Theofanis Matsopoulos explains that the images seen by the human eye do not reflect the whole reality. Light includes radiation invisible to us which is observed with special scientific instruments and telescopes. The show describes these radiations and makes an impressive tour of the violent phenomena of the Universe.
Phantom of the Universe is a fascinating exploration of dark matter, from the Big Bang to its much-anticipated discovery in the Large Hadron Collider. The film will reveal the first signs of its existence through the eyes of Fritz Zwicky, the scientist who coined the term "dark matter". It describes the stellar choreography that Vera Rubin testifies about in the Andromeda Galaxy and then sinks deep into the underground to see the most sensitive dark matter detector on Earth, housed in a former gold mine. From there, it travels through space and time to the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, accelerating alongside particles before colliding with visually stunning bursts of light and sound, and showing how scientists around the world work together to locate its components. dark matter.
400 years ago, a simple adjustment to a child’s spyglass revealed for the first time an infinite and perplexing universe to our eyes and imaginations. Join us today, as the world’s great telescopes, born of that serendipitous moment, gaze ever further into the distant past — and into our future.
