From Earth to the Universe
The night sky, both beautiful and mysterious, has been the subject of campfire stories, ancient myths and awe for as long as there have been people. A desire to comprehend the Universe may well be humanity’s oldest shared intellectual experience.
Yet only recently have we truly begun to grasp our place in the vast cosmos. Learn about this journey of celestial discovery, from the theories of the ancient Greek astronomers to today’s grandest telescopes.
This is a show if you are curious about...
- How astronomers observed the night sky throughout history.
