When we look up into the sky it appears we live in a universe that is filled with light. But scientists are now certain there is far more matter in the dark portions of our universe that we can’t see or touch. There’s something hiding in the shadows. Cosmologists agree that “dark matter” has helped shape our Universe, but now they need to figure out what dark matter is. What’s going on in this hidden world ? Could it have formed its own dark stars, planets, and even life forms ? Could this Shadow Universe threaten our world of light ?
In this fifth season, Morgan Freeman walks us Through The Wormhole and into the mind-bending realities defining our universe. Exploring topics from gravity to poverty, these ten episodes set out on scientific quests for answers to our most puzzling questions. Is there such a thing as a shadow universe? When did time begin? Is a zombie apocalypse possible? Does the ocean think? Quantum physicists, biologists, statisticians, neuroscientists, and more of the world s greatest minds take a synergistic approach to provide practical answers and pose even more questions in an attempt to explain the unexplained.
