This week, we explored the hidden cosmos in our doc "Making of Dark Universe," followed projection mapping gurus URBANSCREEN as they turned in the inside of a defunct gas tank into a spectacular light cathedral, and talked to the nanotech artist who made the ["blacker-than-black," the darkest color ever](http:// http://thecreatorsproject.vice.com/blog/meet-the-artist-behind-blacker-than-black-the-darkest-color-ever). For everything else we missed, here's the best of the rest!
