MUSEUM OF SCIENCE AND INDUSTRY REVEALS "SECRETS OF THE UNIVERSE"
CHICAGO (June 11, 2019)–The Museum of Science and Industry, Chicago (MSI) invites guests to witness the largest and most powerful particle collider in the world, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), duplicate the conditions of the start of the Universe with Secrets of the Universe. This latest film is now showing through February inside MSI’s Giant Dome Theater, the only five-story, domed theater in Chicago.
Secrets of the Universe documents physicist Dr. Manuel Calderón de la Barca Sánchez and a team of 10,000 scientists from 50 different countries as they use the LHC to rush protons at the speed of light, taking guests within a millionth of a second after the Big Bang to give an even deeper look into our origins. Plus, explore additional large machines and experiments that are unlocking the mysteries of dark energy, dark matter and extra dimensions.
In Secrets of the Universe, Dr. Sánchez attempts to confirm new theories about the very nature of atoms. In this film director Stephen Low reveals how the LHC provides modern scientists with tools scientists of the past could only have dreamed of, while also aiming to inspire the next generation of scientists.
Secrets of the Universe is presented daily at 11 a.m., 12:30 p.m., 2 p.m., 3:30 p.m., and at 5 p.m. on extended days through February 27, 2020. The Giant Dome Theater is not included in Museum Entry and requires an additional timed-entry ticket. Tickets for films are available in Explorer ticket packages.
