Dark energy. Dark matter. These strange and invisible substances sound mysterious and their unexpected appearance in the cosmic census is upending long-held notions about the nature of the Universe. The Universe is known to be expanding but everything indicated that gravity should slow this spread. Instead, the Universe is accelerating its expansion and something stronger than gravity - dark energy - is at work. Evalyn Gates transports us to the edge of science to explore the tool that unlocks the secrets of these little-understood cosmic constituents. Based on the theory of general relativity, gravitational lensing, or 'Einstein's Telescope', is enabling discoveries that are taking us towards the next revolution in scientific thinking - one that may change our understanding of where the Universe came from and where it is going.
