According to the late, great American jazz musician Sun Ra, space is the place. That same sentiment is shared by astrophysicist, cosmologist and author Neil deGrasse Tyson. “Dark Universe,” the 45-minute exploration of space developed by the American Museum of Natural History in collaboration the California Academy of Sciences, features Tyson narrating a fascinating journey into the great unknown. The film plays in the impressive dome at the Science Museum of Virginia. A live astronomer-led presentation proceeds and follows each screening, adding to the enigmatic cosmic phenomena and awe-inspiring scenes in deep space. Tickets for the family-friendly flight into the outer reaches of the universe are $5-$9. For showtimes, call 864-1400 or visit smv.org.
