Visualizing The Hidden Cosmos | The Making Of ‘Dark Universe’ (by The Creators Project)

"The team behind Hayden Planetarium’s latest space show, Dark Universe, including Neil deGrasse Tyson, detail the developments in research and technology that have enabled the show’s unprecedented views of our galaxy. Find out how they were able to simulate and visualize the cosmic mysteries of dark matter and dark energy, which make up 95% of the universe invisible to the naked eye. "

The Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) is an Explorer-class planet finder. In the first-ever spaceborne all-sky transit survey, TESS will identify planets ranging from Earth-sized to gas giants, orbiting a wide range of stellar types and orbital distances. The principal goal of the TESS mission is to detect small planets with bright host stars in the solar neighborhood, so that detailed characterizations of the planets and their atmospheres can be performed.
