Science often takes the regular and highlights the phenomenal. As physicist Brian Greene will reveal tonight in "What is Space," the first episode of a new PBS NOVA collection, The Fabric of the Cosmos empty space is frothing with opportunities and surprises. Viewers of "What is Space" will meet Drs. But even as gravity is trying to pull remote galaxies together, a mystical pressure understood as dark energy is pushing them away. Since the galaxies are relocating apart much faster and quicker, dark energy seems to be winning the day. Scientists have since established that dark energy comprises more than 70 percent of the mass-energy in the world. Scientists at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, another Office of Science center, are examining the enigmas of space. 2 of them, Craig Hogan, Director of the Fermilab Center for Particle Astrophysics and Joe Lykken, a theoretical physicist at the laboratory, will also appear tonight on NOVA. Fermilab researchers are constructing experiments to get more information about dark energy. Those that listen will see that void is full of enigma and opportunity at its smallest ranges. And space might be even unfamiliar person in the darkest areas of all, the hearts of black holes, where space is utterly twisted and deformed. They'll also introduce viewers to other researchers sustained by the Office of Science, who are making our cosmos a more easy to understand place.
