Horizon: The Mystery of Dark Energy

Horizon looks at dark energy - the mysterious force that is unexpectedly causing the universe's expansion to speed up

The effects of dark energy were discovered in 1998, but physicists still don’t know what it is. Worse, its very existence calls into question Albert Einstein‘s general theory of relativity – the cornerstone of modern physics.

The hunt for the identity of dark energy is on. Experiments on earth …

Einstein’s Quantum Riddle

Join scientists as they grab light from across the universe to prove quantum entanglement is real

Over the past century, scientists have made huge strides in understanding the mind-bending rules that govern the microworld of atoms and subatomic particles. But these rules, called quantum mechanics, contain one particularly bizarre, unexplained phenomenon: quantum entanglement.

Imagine two subatomic particles that mirror changes in each other instantaneously …
