Is everything that we know about the universe wrong? Scientists are used to having theories that they have worked on for years suddenly debunked but the idea that everything that we know about the universe being incorrect is a scary notion yet something that is scientific at its core. This troubling idea sprung about by the chance discovery of an object which seemed to suck up parts of space as it moved, much like a cosmic vacuum cleaner. The phenomena was first discovered by scientist Sasha Kaplinsky who was surprised to see something that does not fit into the known set of rules for the universe, it was named dark flow, a fitting name for mysterious phenomena like dark matter and dark energy.
This documentary raises an important point which is; When should we re-write the textbook of science? Or are we close to understanding the universe in a much more fundamental way? The Higgs Boson particle has been discovered, gravitational waves have been detected and this is just the beginning if we are to understand what the true behaviour of the dark is. Science is about getting data and taking the conclusion as is so Samuel West is exploring the exciting fringes of science which stand to completely re-shape our knowledge about the world around us; no matter what way it goes the understanding will only become greater.
