On Thursday, June 26, 2014, the American Museum of Natural History’s Junior Council concluded its 2013-2014 season with Inside Dark Universe—a special screening of the Museum’s Space Show, Dark Universe, narrated by Neil deGrasse Tyson, the Frederick P. Rose Director of the Hayden Planetarium. The event featured remarks by Rosamond Kinzler, the executive producer of Dark Universe and senior director of science education at the Museum, as well as Vivian TrakinskiDark Universe producer. It was the perfect evening for the cocktail and jazz reception which followed on the Museum’s Arthur Ross Terrace.

Dark Universe embarks viewers upon a journey of the recent dramatic advances in our knowledge of the universe and explores what’s to come in the future of cosmology. Through an extremely detailed, never-before-seen visualization based on new scientific data, the audience experienced how dark matter—an invisible form of matter—shapes galaxies and delves into the mysteries of dark energy, the force that is accelerating the expansion of the universe. I urge you to experience it for yourself in the Museum’s planetarium as you will literally feel as though the universe is brought down to Earth so that you may travel within it. This enthralling glimpse of the cosmos will take you 100 million light years away and leave you feeling awestruck, intrigued and humbled, especially being that it is not so much of a tour of what we do know as a vast depiction of what we absolutely do not. What is the invisible dark matter underlying galaxies that, together with dark energy, account for at least 95 percent of the universe’s total energy and mass? What lies beyond our cosmic horizon?

The American Museum of Natural History’s Junior Council is one of New York City’s most stimulating membership groups for young philanthropists. Founded in 1994, the Junior Council supports the Museum’s mission to discover, interpret, and disseminate—through scientific research and education—knowledge about human cultures, the natural world, and the universe. Each year, Junior Council members participate in special events that offer them an intimate view inside the Museum’s collections, activities, and exhibitions. Junior Council members go behind the scenes at one of the world’s preeminent museums, meet some of the nation’s most distinguished and engaging scientists, and preview the latest exhibitions.
