DARK UNIVERSE, the new Hayden Planetarium Space Show now open at the American Museum of Natural History, is produced by an acclaimed team that includes astrophysicist and curator Mordecai-Mark Mac Low. Here, Dr. Mac Low discusses cosmic microwave background - energy left over from the Big Bang that provides a "baby picture of the universe."

DARK UNIVERSE celebrates the pivotal discoveries that have led us to greater knowledge of the structure and history of the universe and our place in it—and to new frontiers for exploration. The Space Show is narrated by astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson.
