From the journey of protons racing through the world’s largest particle collider in Europe to up-close views of the Big Bang and emergent cosmos, Phantom of the Universe is designed to immerse you in the search for dark matter. Narrated by Academy Award winner Tilda Swinton, the show reveals the first hints of dark matter, a term coined by scientist Fritz Zwicky.
