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. Learn about humanity’s journey of celestial discovery, from the theories of the ancient Greek astronomers to today’s grandest telescopes. This stunning voyage through space and time conveys the majestic Universe revealed to us by science.

Viewers can revel in the splendor of the worlds in the Solar System and our scorching Sun. From Earth to the Universe takes the audience to the colorful birthplaces and burial grounds of stars and still further out beyond the Milky Way to the unimaginable immensity of a myriad of galaxies. Along the way, the audience will learn about the history of astronomy, the invention of the telescope, and today’s giant telescopes that allow us to probe ever deeper into the Universe.
