Made in collaboration with the Science Gallery London. This sci-fi art documentary looks at the unseen presence of black women in science while channelling the spirit of Vera Rubin, the woman who discovered Dark Matter. Directed by Adeyemi Michael.
there is a dark side to our universe
most of the cosmos is made of something
astronomers cannot see at all
we ideally what we all dream of is that
when you do it when you ask questions of
in science when you ask questions of
nature you will get answers that are
much bigger than what you went out to
the galaxies are held together by an
invisible halo of dark time
we know there is mass there so a better
a better name might have been the
missing luminosity that is where is
where is this matter dark matter is a
good term unknown matter may be a good
term but the fact that it’s dark is its
most prominent characteristic I like
dark matter and just like in the solar
system where most of the masses at the
Sun you expect that as things get
farther and farther away they orbit more
slowly and what we found is that these
stars are going just as rapidly as those
stars and we’re forced to conclude that
they’re responding to a gravitational
field we don’t see and that
gravitational field must be composed of
but it is an enormous pleasure to to see
see things you’ve never seen before to
attempt to understand them
95% of the universe is black
