Have you ever wondered what’s between the stars? What fills the dark patches of sky, the bits between the recognised? Is the emptiness really empty?
The answer is no! We now know there’s black holes, dust, dark matter and even Earth-like planets hiding in the dark places. Join scientific experts from The University of Queensland for a cosmic demonstration and discover how astronomers have learned to explore the dark regions of the universe and “illuminate” what we can’t see.
