Astrophysicist and Director of the Hayden Planetarium, Neil deGrasse Tyson reads Walt Whitman's "When I Heard the Learn'd Astronomer."

DARK UNIVERSE, the new Hayden Planetarium Space Show premiering November 2, 2013, at the American Museum of Natural History, is produced by an acclaimed team that includes astrophysicists and data visualization experts.

In stunningly detailed scenes based on authentic scientific data—including a NASA probe's breathtaking plunge into Jupiter's atmosphere and novel visualizations of unobservable dark matter—DARK UNIVERSE explores this new age of cosmic discovery and reveals the mysteries that have been brought to light so far.

The Space Show is narrated by astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson.

DARK UNIVERSE was created by the American Museum of Natural History, the Frederick Phineas and Sandra Priest Rose Center for Earth and Space, and the Hayden Planetarium.

Made possible through the generous sponsorship of ACCENTURE.

And proudly supported by CON EDISON.

The Museum also gratefully acknowledges major funding from the Charles Hayden Foundation.

Presented with special thanks to NASA and the National Science Foundation.

DARK UNIVERSE was developed by the American Museum of Natural History, New York (www.amnh.org),
in collaboration with the California Academy of Sciences, San Francisco and GOTO INC, Tokyo, Japan.
