Director(s): Stéphane CORRÉA – Writer(s): Serge BRUNIER, Bruno BUCHER Contact Print page
Today, Mauna Kea, which rises to 4,200 m above sea level, has become one of the high places of astronomy in the world. From this magnificent viewpoint, Serge Brunier casts his eyes towards the heavens and further into the cosmos, wondering about one of the great enigmas of modern cosmology. Although astronomers were able to describe the architecture of the Universe and reconstruct its history based on Einstein’s equations, this model works with 96% of inexplicable elements. Most of the material and the energy which make up the universe is still completely unknown to them!
As Serge Brunier arrives at the foot of the giant telescopes of the Hawaiian mountain, will he manage to unravel the mystery of dark matter and dark energy and thus reveal the dark side of the universe?
