We Live in a Universe of Horrors

There are many deadly and mysterious phenomena in the universe — from powerful gamma ray bursts and invisible dark matter, to exoplanets (planets outside our solar system) that literally rain glass. Join NASA scientists and communicators in a panel discussion about some of the real and terrifying marvels beyond our solar system. They will expose some of the dangers lurking in the darkness of space and reveal the process of communicating these chilling phenomena by intersecting science and visual arts.
