Die soektog na donker materie is die dringendste astrofisika probleem van ons tyd. Dit verken waarom die nuwe Australiese Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder teleskoop so belangrik is in hierdie wetenskaplike ondersoek.

Ons reis deur totaal versonke visualiserings van Donker Materie. Dit is nie wetenskapsfiksie nie, al klink dit so. Dit is werklike dinge. Werklike data, soos vir die eerste keer gesien op hierdie wyse.

DARK is 'n avontuur na die uithoeke van kontemporere kosmologie en data voorstellings, wat 'n komplekse wetenskaplike storie vertel met 'n tikkie menslikheid.

_________________________________

The search for dark matter is the most important astrophysical problem of our time. It explains why the new Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder telescope so important is in this scientific exploration.

We take a journey through totally sunken visualisations of Dark Matter. This is not science fiction, even though you might think it is. This is real life. This is true data as seen for the first time in this way.

DARK is an adventure to the extremes of contemporary cosmetology and data predictions which tells a complex scientific story with a touch of humanity.
